In recent years, however, most Japanese companies haveundergone intensive restructuring leading to divestitures, mergers & acquisitions, lay-offs and re-focused businessactivities. Japanese companies are once again 'looking abroad', the Japanese market is regainingstrength, and only in 2004 over 170 Japanese companies went public.An update on Japan is therefore due, which is why Dujat is organising "The Dujat Japan Update 2005" in theSieboldHuis in Leiden on 26 October 2005.Invited to the symposium are Japan watchers from the US, Europe and Japan itself, who will be sharing theirviews on Japan's economy, its finances and on major changes such as the planned privatisation of Japan Post.For more information: http://www.dujat.nl/The European Office of the EU-Japan Centre alone is responsible for the information contained in its communications or publications.Neither the European Commission nor the Government of Japan is responsible for any use that may be made of the informationcontained therein.

NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2005/4 VOL 3French Clusters presented at JETRO BIOLINK FORUMJapan is one of the target markets for French enterprises in the biotech sector, yet it misleadinglygives the impression of being a closed and demanding market, where only the bigindustrial groups or brands can succeed. Although some French SMEs have already donewell there, successful export and set-up initiatives in Japan are still too few and muchremains to be done.Related to this, Mr. Luc Rousseau - Director-General of the DG for Enterprises (FrenchGovernment) - made a speech during the JETRO BIOLINK FORUM held in Yokohama on7-9 September 2005 (see extracts below).Mr. Rousseau thanked particularly Mr. Osamu Watanabe, Chairman of JETRO andMr. Tsuyoshi Nakai, Chairman of JETRO Paris, for the opportunity to attend this very important Forum organised by JETRO and tointroduce the French biotech industry and the new measures implemented by the French Government in order to support high-techindustries, in particular biotech industries.2005 was a very busy year for the French Government, especially for the Directorate-General for Enterprises, with the creation of the ANR(National Research Agency) and the AII (Industrial Innovation Agency), and the decision on French competitiveness clusters.In the biotech sector the ANR funds research & development collaborative projects, including partnerships between large companies andsmaller ones and partnerships between private companies and public research agencies. These projects are selected within the contextof the Biotechnology Innovation Network, created in September 2004 during the meeting of the CSIC (Strategic Committee for HealthIndustries), a member of which is a top executive of the Japanese pharma company TAKEDA.One of the major events of 2005 has been the implementation of competitiveness clusters from a call for proposals launched at the end of2004. Indeed, this call for proposals was very successful, attracting 105 projects. In July the French Government announced that 67 wereselected as "competitiveness" clusters, of which 15 were identified as "global" clusters, based on their ability to act worldwide.More information on: http://www.industrie.gouv.frDate / Location17 - 21 Oct 2005Paris, FranceEvent14th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition:“Biomass for Energy, Industry and ClimateProtection”ContactETA - Renewable EnergiesE-mail: email@example.comConference website:http://www.conference-biomass.com18 - 21 Oct 2005Tokyo, Japan“Bella Italia” Tokyo 2005 - Boutique ItaliaItalian Trade Commission (ICE)Tel: +81 (0)3 3475 1401 / Fax: +81 (0)3 3475 1440 /E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org://www.ice.it/estero2/giapponehttp://www.ice-tokyo.or.jp19 Oct 2005Tokyo, JapanEU Johogen SeminarMr. Fabrizio Mura, Chief Information Officer“Intellectual Property (IP) Valuation - EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperationhow strategies of an “Innovation Driven Society” E-mail: email@example.com implemented in the Management Fax: +81 (0)3 3221 6226of European Firms"19 - 20 Oct 2005Portorož, Slovenia20 - 26 Oct 2005Tokyo / Osaka, Japan25 Oct 2005Dortmund, GermanyOctober 2005Roma / Pescara, ItalyPort Management and Logistics Conference“Trade between the EU and Far East:South European ports as an alternativeto the North European ports”UBIFRANCE Symposium“Présentation du savoir-faire françaisdans le secteur des accessoires de mode”“Successful in Germany” Seminarco-organised by UK Trade & Investmentand the German-British Chamber of Industry& CommerceLifestyle, Art, CultureEurope - Japan Face to FaceMr. Luka Koper, Port and Logistic Systemhttp://www.luka-kp.siUBIFRANCE, Mrs. Marie-Christine ThumerelE-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTel: +33 (0)1 40733880Contact: Sven Riemann, Marketing Services,German-British Chamber of Industry & Commercehttp://www.ahk-london.co.uk/einladung_dortmund.pdfContact: http://www.eu-japan.netE-mail: email@example.com Oct 2005London, UKAPTN/SIMMONS & SIMMONS Seminar Simmons and Simmons, London"Japanese Electronics Companies in Europe: the http://www.aptn.org/51027a.htmlegal issues"
