Business Seminar: Japan-Israel SMEs Collaboration

Center for International Economic Collaboration (CFIEC) and Center on Finance and Innovation, Waseda University hosted "Business Seminar: Japan-Israel SMEs Collaboration" on November 26th, 2020. It aimed to showcase enterprise collaboration on Japanese SMEs and Israeli companies to drive business growth and innovation. We published case studies on Japan-Israel SMEs Collaboration on our website prior to the seminar to raise the awareness of various types of enterprise collaboration between two countries.

We were pleased to welcome three companies from Japan and an Israeli company from the study to present their business experience with the other country's partner(s) in this seminar. After a presentation by each company, we have discussed the prospects and challenges of SMEs' collaboration on the panel session.
