Taiwan: manufacturers seeking green trade deals in Japan

Twenty-three Taiwanese manufacturers of green products arrived in Japan on Sunday to seek procurement deals with hundreds of businesses there.

Over the next seven days, the Taiwanese enterprises will hold meetings with 300 Japanese companies, including the major trading firm Marubeni Corp., machinery and electronics maker Minebea Co., and Kuroda Electric Co., in Fukuoka, Osaka and Tokyo.

The Taiwanese companies will seek buyers for products such as LED lighting, green building materials, electric cars, solar-powered lighting and energy-saving monitoring systems.

The procurement meetings in Japan, organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), are focused for the first time on the green industry.

The trip was organized in light of the booming green market in Japan, state support there for renewable energy, a strong Japanese yen and the Japanese government’s decision to expand procurements from overseas, the TAITRA said.

The number of Japanese firms committed to the procurement meetings indicates a strong interest in Taiwan’s eco-friendly products, according to the TAITRA.

In addition to the meetings, representatives of Taiwanese firms will also tour the subway system in Fukuoka and the Panasonic Center in Osaka — a product and service showroom – to look at the latest energy-saving products and equipment and to seek partnerships, the TAITRA said.
