Joined the “SDGs for Regional Revitalization Public‒Private Partnership Platform” of the Cabinet Office

We have joined the “SDGs for Regional Revitalization Public‒Private Partnership Platform”, a forum for public-private partnerships established by the Cabinet Office to deepen partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders, with the aim of promoting the SDGs in Japan and further regional development .

https://future-city.go.jp/platform/

 

In order to unite the world toward the achievement of 17 common goals, we, as a small and medium-sized enterprise in Japan, would like to create new values with a sense of value that is not bound by the past. We aim to create opportunities in which companies that should be pursuing profits can benefit from the SDGs, rather than having to endure or bear more burdens in order to achieve them. We will provide consulting services that enable companies to create their own places of diversity without being bound by size, country, race, or gender, and to grow together with colleagues (companies) who share their values and aspirations.

 

【The three goals we are focusing on are】

10: REDUCED INEQUALITIES

13: CLIMATE ACTION

17: PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GORLS

 

【What we hope to achieve through our activities toward the SDGs, and the social and regional issues we wish to resolve】

We aim to conjoin Japanese companies with overseas companies that are working to realize a sustainable society, and to revitalize business through borderless partnerships that transcend national and regional boundaries. We hope to create businesses that can be active on a global scale by leveraging the strengths of both companies and organizations that have excellent technologies and services but have not been able to return them to society, and companies and organizations that have technologies and services that are useful to the world but are saturated with needs in their own countries.

Our company has been selected as a “Support Partner” for the “JAPAN Brand Development Support Project” hosted by Japanese government

The “JAPAN Brand Development Support Project” of the Small and Medium Enterprise Agency aims to help local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) attract demand from outside the region by subsidizing part of the costs for SMEs to develop and improve new products and services, branding, and develop new sales channels in order to expand overseas or nationwide with looking at overseas expansion. The purpose of the program is to contribute to the revitalization of the local economy and the promotion of local SMEs.

This year, emphasis was placed on matching talented support partners with SMEs that wish to expand overseas, and the use of “support partners,” private businesses selected by the Small and Medium Enterprise Agency, became a mandatory requirement for applications for this project.

As a “supporting partner” of the “JAPAN Brand Development Support Project,” a project for which we were selected in the initial budget for FY2021, we at LEGARE will provide comprehensive support for companies’ overseas expansion projects, including the formulation of business plans, so that they can continue to expand their overseas operations even after the subsidy project ends.

Thursday, October 8: “Vietnam Investment Webinar” (Completed)

Over the past decade, Vietnam has overwhelmed other countries in terms of the number of Japanese companies expanding overseas. The Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ho Chi Minh City has more than 1,000 member companies, ranking third in the world in terms of the number of Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry members by city after Shanghai (approximately 2,400 companies) and Bangkok (approximately 1,800 companies). The total number of member companies of the Japanese Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Hanoi and Da Nang exceeds that of Bangkok, and this number is expected to increase. Due to the recent trade war between the U.S. and China and the COVID-19 pandemic, Japanese companies that have found it difficult to carry out production activities in China are looking for places to relocate to in Southeast Asia, and Vietnam is their first choice. The Japanese government is also making supplementary budgets to support the relocation of these companies in order to shift the supply chain from China.

This time, BW Industrial Development JSC (hereinafter referred to as “BWID”), the largest developer of rental factories and warehouses in Vietnam, and Meinan Tax Vietnam Co., Ltd (hereinafter referred to as “Meinan”), a Vietnamese subsidiary of a major accounting firm in Nagoya, held a “Vietnam Investment Webinar” as follows.
