Doing business with Japan
Ohio and the tristate region enjoy a longstanding mutually beneficial partnership with Japan, the world’s third-largest economy. Japan is one of the target countries for the Cincinnati USA Partnership's international strategy, and represents the largest number of foreign-owned businesses in the region.
Japan in Mid-America: Renewal, Challenges and Opportunities, a conference to be held on January 23rd on UC's campus, will address challenges currently facing Japan, how they impact this partnership and importantly why Mid-America will continue to be an attractive partner.
This is a must attend event if:

- Are affiliated with a state or regional economic development team
