“ By joining a business mission, you are privileged to associate with EU Gateway, a well-known brand within the local business environment and a credible reference for your potential local partners. ”

“ Thanks to EU Gateway, we have been able to establish ourselves in the Japanese market. We found more customers and were able to build our distribution network. Sales in Japan now account for 5% of our export. ”

“ The profile of being selected for an EU business mission was a very helpful marketing tool, with good visibility in the local technical media. In addition, we were able to develop new, high quality contacts. ”

“ EU Gateway provides unique entry tickets for the Japanese market. During several consecutive missions, we succeeded to create new business links, enhance existing contacts and refine our business strategy. ”

“ The EU Gateway Programme gives much better contacts than any other exhibition. This is a good platform to understand deeper the business mentality in order to find partners. ”


The EU Gateway Programme organises and funds Business Missions in high technology and design sectors for European SMEs to develop their business in Japan and Korea. Participating companies benefit from an attractive package of coaching, strategic and logistical services as well as financial support. Launched in 1994 and funded by the European Union, EU Gateway has since successfully accompanied more than 3000 companies to Japan and Korea.
