OpenArc participated in one of the biggest IT exhibition in Asian region named CEATEC JAPAN 2015 from 7th to 9th October 2015.
EDB and JETRO took the leadership in organizing the Sri Lanka pavilion at the CEATEC Exhibition and guided the Delegation of six (6) Sri Lankan software companies who participated in the event.
Before joining CEATEC, JETRO held a Sri Lanka Seminar at their head office in Tokyo. The Financial Minister Mr. Ravi Karunanayake, BOI Chairman Mr. Upul Jayasuriya and about 200 Japanese companies / investors attended the Seminar.
In addition to above, Sri Lanka delegation had meetings with Japanese IT associations such as JISA (Japan Information Technology Services Industry Association) and JUAS (Japan Users Association of Information Systems). Sri Lanka delegation had a good opportunity to learn about the IT industry in Japan and during the mission, we discussed the possibility of expanding Sri Lankan IT companies’ business in Japan.
Further, some of the Japanese companies already engaged in international businesses in other countries including India and China were interested in Sri Lanka and OpenArc is presently having some discussion with those Japanese companies.
We will keep in touch with those Japanese companies, some of which have already visited us in Sri Lanka, and work with them exploring business opportunities and expanding our operations in Japan for mutual benefits.
