JETRO, the Japan External Trade Organization, is considering the possibility to establish an advisory group to support small-sized and medium-sized companies from Japan, which intend to operate in Russia.
According to NHK TV channel. The group will include up to 10 experts with relevant work experience in the Russian market. In particular, their tasks will include setting out business plans, market research, as well as assistance in search and conclusion of contracts between Russian and Japanese partners.
The advisory group is likely to start its work as early as before the end of the current year. Over the course of several years, JETRO plans to render assistance up to 150 Japanese companies.
