About the JMEC Business Program in Tokyo
The Japan Market Expansion Competition (JMEC) is a business training program in Japan designed to foster the development of foreign businesses (project clients) in Japan while strengthening the business skills of up-and-coming executives (participants).
JMEC brings together highly motivated mid-career professionals willing to challenge themselves and companies in need of a business plan for their activities in the Japanese market. The core of the program is a competition in which participant groups compete to create the best business plan for their respective company clients, the project clients.
JMEC was initiated by the Australian & New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan in 1993 and is based on the New South Wales Enterprise Workshop. This competitive business-training program is supported by eighteen foreign chambers of commerce in Japan, representing the countries of America, Australia & New Zealand, Austria (represented by the Austrian Business Council), Belgium & Luxembourg, Britain, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. The program also receives corporate sponsorship from members of the business community within Japan.
Participants take part in a 2-part program. The first phase focuses on classroom instruction and workshops, while the second part involves hands-on experience writing a business plan for a company’s endeavors in the Japanese market. Client companies receive a professional quality business plan making JMEC an ideal option for any organization doing business or considering starting a business in Japan.
