JETRO and the Government of British Columbia are pleased to host a Forum to commemorate the 90th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Canada. The main theme of the event is Innovation and how Canada and Japan can work together to advance innovation to the benefit of both Canadian and Japanese companies.

To set the scene, we will have a presentation by JETRO to give a broad overview of business and innovation ties between Japan and Canada, after which we will hear from one of the leading players, Fujitsu Intelligence Technology, who have recently established their AI headquarters in Vancouver. We will also hear from a panel of B.C. companies that have either established operations in Japan or have formed partnerships with Japanese firms to hear how they have achieved their success and what advice they can give to other B.C. companies looking to partner with Japan.

Welcome Remarks:
- Address by Guest of Honor: Bruce Ralston, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology
- Address by Guest of Honor: Consulate-General of Japan in Vancouver
- Address by Organizer: Takuji Sakai, Executive Director, JETRO Toronto
