Saitama City Foundation is a public foundation, established by Saitama City. We are in charge of supporting small to medium companies in Saitama. Since 2011, the city of Saitama has been coordinating business matchings and technical exchanges between JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), which is responsible for interregional exchange projects (RIT projects). After the end of a three-year funding period by JETRO, we issured a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for company cooperation with the “Forum MedTech Pharma e.V.” and the “Bayern Innovativ GmbH” (2014) as well as the “Cluster Mechatronik & Automation e.V.” and the “IHK Nuremberg” (2014). With the establishment of a deep trust relationship through frequent exchanges over the past eight years, the information received from Germany as well as the need for technical collaborations has increased. As a result, the number of companies from Saitama - which are targeting sales in Germany - are growing. We have exhibited at COMPAMED (Hall8/H21) since 2014, and MEDICA (Hall3/E93) since 2017.
