JETRO is a state institution established on the basis of a specific law to expand trade and investment between Japan and other countries. Since it was established more than 20 years ago – in February 1993 – the JETRO representative office in Moscow has been actively working to develop foreign economic ties and investment cooperation between Japan and Russia, in close cooperation with Russia’s federal and regional authorities as well as public organizations.
JETRO is a non-profit organization. Its goal is the harmonious development of Japan’s external trade and capital investments.
The main functions of JETRO are to provide information services, consulting services, and business development programmes (seminars, exhibitions, training programmes, etc.).
JETRO is the largest and most effective business information centre in Japan for foreign businesses wishing to develop ties with Japan.
The official JETRO website features the Trade Tie-up Promotion Program (TTPP), which was developed by JETRO and enables organizations to present proposals online and find business partners in Japan. The TTPP system is free, open to all, and contains an extensive databank on cooperation in the following areas: import/export, technology transfer, mutual investment, trade relations, office services (including translation and legal services), and market research.
