Statement by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe

The New Japanese Era Name is “Reiwa”

This was taken from wording appearing in the Manyoshu: “In this auspicious month of early spring, the weather is fine and the wind gentle. The plum blossoms open like powder before a mirror while the orchids give off the sweet scent of a sachet.” Moreover, this name “Reiwa” includes the meaning of culture coming into being and flourishing when people bring their hearts and minds together in a beautiful manner

We Want to Learn More About Serbia

The visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe to Serbia after 31 years was truly epoch-making. As a result, young Japanese volunteers will soon arrive in Serbia, while some Japanese companies have started recognising the benefits of Serbia. Our embassy is willing to help these initiatives.

Japanese Companies Ready to Discover Serbia & See

While some prominent Japanese companies already operate in Serbia, huge potential for further cooperation has yet to be explored. The investments by Yazaki and Mayekawa were a good start and today many Japanese companies are carefully watching how successful they are in Serbia. In efforts to provide more information to potential Japanese FDI, Serbian can learn from the Czech example

Atsuko Shiotani, Economic Attaché at the Embassy of Japan in Belgrade

Promising Tide

Compared to ten years ago, economic relations between the two countries have – by and large – expanded significantly. Measured in terms of the number of Japanese direct investment in Serbia, we are seeing six times as many companies today as there were a decade ago. Important political events, as well as some recent investments of Japanese companies in Serbia, are forming the basis for longer-term partnerships.

We Want to Contribute to Serbian Society

As of 2019, JICA will launch a new programme in which Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers, young and energetic Japanese youngsters, will work with Serbian people in the local community on rural development, disaster prevention and support for people living with disabilities. I would take this opportunity to ask the Serbian people to provide a warm welcome for these young people

Goran Pekez, Chairman of the Board of Directors of JBAS

Serbia an Important Developing Market

We must work stronger to promote opportunities to do business in Serbia among Japanese business circles and spread the word in larger circles, as trade cooperation can be enhanced between Serbian and Japanese companies in both Europe and Serbia.
