GNI Paris Mission

GNI Paris Mission


The activities of companies and the economic state of the Greater Nagoya region which is recovering from the effects of the disaster was explained to French administrative organizations, business groups and companies interested in investing in Japan due to concerns abroad that the Japanese economy will be late to recover after the large earthquake in eastern Japan, and the harmful rumors that have been spread regarding industrial products and other merchandise manufactured in the area. In conjunction with this effort, Greater Nagoya Initiative (GNI) will also be promoting the advantages of aircraft parts made by manufacturers in the Greater Nagoya region to top aircraft manufacturers overseas at the Paris Air Show.
