‘Get Ready for Japan’ training programme

Organized yearly since 1987 by the EU-Japan Centre (EEN Japan), the objective of this 2-week long programme is to help EU managers and executives to get an in-depth understanding of how to do business in Japan.

‘Get Ready for Japan’ aims to comprehensively understand Japanese business practices and communication styles and identify opportunities for successful business partnerships. Additionally, the programme aims to provide insights into the decision-making process within Japanese companies, which will contribute to a better understanding of their negotiation style and hierarchy.

Finally, the programme intends to strengthen existing relationships with Japanese customers and establish new contacts with potential ones, thereby expanding the reach and impact of the business.
