Voices of Support for Japan
Belgium: A Hub for Japanese Investors in Africa

             Belgium: A Hub for Japanese Investors in Africa
             ベルギー: アフリカを目指す日本投資家たちのネットワーク拠点

“African nations are no longer Japan’s aid recipients. They are Japan’s partners for growth”

Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, Asian-African Summit, April 2015

Recent studies have shown a significant increase of project finance investments
sponsored by Japanese companies in Africa.
Belgium has a strong relationship with several African countries,
rooted in their common history.
Legal, financial and trade expertise as well as excellent connectivity
and a thorough knowledge of the local culture make the Kingdom
an obvious hub for Japanese investors wishing to develop their business
in Africa.

As part of the celebration of 150 years of diplomatic relations between
Japan and Belgium, the time is right for African, Belgian and Japanese business
makers to gather and explore ways to further work and develop together
the vast growth potential offered by Africa.
