The National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) is encouraging its members to take part in the upcoming UK-Japan Trade Missions.
The Department for International Trade has announced a series of enterprise-focused UK-Japan Trade Missions to push UK businesses to invest in the Japanese market.
The missions are set to take place over Spring 2021 and NAJ members have been invited to represent the jewellery industry.
Graham Stuart, minister for Exports, is set to launch a 90-minute event titled ‘Partnering with Japan – Spring’21 Free Trade Agreement Series’ to provide insight into the Japanese market.
Taran Sahota, international services manager for British Jewellery and Giftware International, said: “This is a great opportunity for many businesses to gain an insight into the Japanese market and understand how it can benefit their company.
“The launch event will be a useful learning experience including what support and networking activities are available.”
He added: “We’re finding increasing numbers of BATF members seeking international support from the division, especially with the challenges presented from Brexit, but it’s important to note that our support extends beyond EU relations and policies, it also includes new opportunities in many overseas markets such as what is presented here.”
