Invest Japan MAFF


  On March 27, 2003, the Japan Investment Council (JIC) approved a report by the JIC Expert Committee stating as follows: "The government should translate into English various types of information on investment procedures, such as those related to the establishment of corporations, M&As, and the establishment of plants and store outlets, and set up a single contact point in the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) for access to such information. To complement its services, each ministry or institution related to investment should set up its own contact point that can indicate the division in charge of a particular procedure, and create a website where investors can obtain necessary information." In accordance with this statement, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) established the Invest Japan Office, which came into operation on May 26, 2003.
