Support for Overseas Activities

Support for Overseas Activities of Japan’s Local Government

Sharing best practices with American and Canadian local governments is of a high priority among Japanese local governments. JLGC supports various kinds of Japanese local government projects by facilitating study visits and arranging meetings.

In order to revitalize local economies, some Japanese local governments are trying to find new markets in North America. JLGC helps them showcase their unique activities at exhibitions, events and through media sources. Some ambitious Japanese local governments have already found business partners in North America with the support of JLGC.
