On 24th February 2022, we co-hosted a webinar entitled “Introducing Osaka: the burgeoning Asian financial hub” with the Osaka Prefectural and City Governments. The event was a great success, with a strong turnout and a thought-provoking Q&A.
A summary of the webinar is available to view now on the Global Financial City OSAKA website, or by clicking on the video image below:
Each of our panellists provided informative insights into why Osaka could be the ideal location for your Asia expansion, the challenges foreign companies might encounter in Japan, and the range of support initiatives available in Osaka to assist with these.
You can hear, for example, from:
- Brian Lim – on the appeal of Osaka, and how Rainmaking PLC has engaged with several foreign startups to help them run trial PoC projects in the city
- Yu Liang – on how foreign interest in the region has grown, and how the Osaka Business and Investment Center has helped to provide support with this
- Hidekazu Nakamoto – on how the newly-created Osaka Global Finance One-Stop Support Center offers a wide range of support for foreign financial companies interested in the region
