About The Great Okinawa Trade Fair
What is The Great Okinawa Trade Fair
The Great Okinawa Trade Fair is held to promote Okinawa as a global logistics hub, contributing to the expansion of overseas sales routes for specialty products from throughout Japan.
Making the best of this opportunity to bring individuals in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, and food product suppliers throughout Japan, and buyers from home and abroad together in the global logistics hub and taking full advantage of Okinawa's great location in the heart of East Asia, we will provide outstanding opportunities for international food business discussions with support from all of Okinawa, and promote imports of agriculture, fishery and other food products of Japan.
We are holding one of the largest trade fairs in Japan with the participation of many overseas buyers for business negotiations based on appointments made in advance, which makes it possible for us to provide better opportunities than other trade fairs can. While seeking branding strategies, we provide buyers and suppliers the opportunity to see the benefits of Okinawa as a business and trade base, aiming to establish our position as a global base for business negotiations.
The 2014 Great Okinawa Trade Fair highlights Okinawa as a trade base in Asia and a bridge for world trade (bankoku shinryo) as we expand further for Japan and Asia.
