Japanese Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are set to make aggressive forays into the Indian markets, particularly those of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat and West Bengal, as the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) strives to make SME globalisation a key pillar of its overseas activities.
Addressing a FICCI meeting in New Delhi on ‘India-Japan Economic Partnership: The Way Forward’, Tadashi Okamura, Chairman, JCCI, said, “During this visit to India, the Japanese business delegation plans to sign a MoU with the Government of Tamil Nadu aimed at cooperation in encouraging Japanese SMEs to invest in the State. We hope that this will prompt our members, especially manufacturers, to take greater interest in India and that will accelerate expansion into Tamil Nadu and India as a whole.”
Mr. Okamura observed that Japan’s small and medium-sized manufacturers have the advanced technical capabilities and by expanding into India, “I believe they can help local manufacturers to become more competitive through technology transfers, greater employment opportunities and human resources development.”
