THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indo-Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry will take a 20-member multi-sector SME delegation to Japan from May 14 to 18. N Krishnaswami, president  of the chamber, told a press conference that it would be  the fourth delegation visit to Japan.  

He said the delegation would  be leaving Chennai for Tokyo on May 13. He said he had met the Industries Minister P K Kunhalikutty and apprised him of the importance of the State Government sending  some government secretaries along with the delegation as part of its efforts to project Kerala in Japan.

 He said the minister had assured him to take the matter seriously. Krishnaswamy said there were immense opportunities for Kerala to project itself as an investment destination. The state can project its IT, Ayurveda and tourism sectors  before the Japanese industrialists.

 Krishnaswamy said the chamber had chalked  out a schedule of programmes in Japan  covering Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka and Hiroshima.

The programme primarily  comprises B2B seminars with Japanese counterparts  of leading Chambers  of Commerce and Industry.

 The chamber delegation would be invited for an interaction with the Chambers in those places. The Japanese chambers also make it a point to extend invitations to the associate chambers in the nearby towns and cities to ensure wider participation  in the seminar.

 He said the delegation members will have to bear their expenses for air travel, accommodation,  and local transport charges in-cost basis. The chamber will  make all the arrangements for the group travel. A registration fee of Rs 10,000  will be charged in advance by the chamber to cover the administrative and incidental expenses.

The last date of registration  is February 29.  For further queries or information, the chamber can be contacted  at Indo-japan@ijcci.com. Phone 044-24352010/24354779.
