Industrial Tours

IIST organizes “industrial tours” for foreign diplomats stationed in Japan to deepen their understanding of Japan’s regional economies and industries through tours to local industries and opinion exchanges with local government officials and business circles. The tours provide participants with opportunities to learn investment environments, actual state for attracting foreign companies, history, and culture in visited regions. The tours are also expected to increase businesses between the regions and foreign countries, and contribute to the vitalization of the regional economies.

Up to fiscal 2003, IIST organized these tours as part of its international economic and industrial exchange programs (specifically, those for promoting the understanding of regional economy).
