UK Aerospace Companies Have Much to Offer the Japanese Aviation Industry
Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2016, which takes place every four years, was held from 12 through 15 October this year. There are a lot of changes happening in civil aviation around the globe and Japan is no exception.
With the Japanese Government committed to increasing inbound tourism by 2020, new airline partnerships being formed, and extra takeoff and landing slots opening up at Narita and Haneda airports, there are plenty of business opportunities in Japan for UK companies in the aviation industry.
DIT’s Head of Trade, Esther Williams, reassured Japanese buyers and industry experts that the UK is looking forward to continuing to work with Japan regardless of the result of the Brexit talks. Article 50 is expected to be triggered by the end of March 2017. Fintech, cybersecurity, and IoT are all priority sectors for the UK moving forward.
