Representatives of Polish and Japanese business circles will meet in Tokyo on Tuesday to discuss cooperation in direct investment, innovations in the power sector and the implementation of large infrastructural projects.

The Polish-Japanese business session was organised by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH).

The meeting is to be inaugurated by Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki, who is now on a visit to Japan.

According to PAIH, Japanese investors have created some 40,000 jobs in over 300 companies in Poland. So far, Japanese companies have invested their capital mainly in the automotive, food, IT and electric mobility sectors. Meanwhile, Polish firms raised their exports to Japan twofold in the past ten years, from EUR 270 million in 2008 to EUR 566 million in 2018.
