The programme aims to promote new investment, maintain and create jobs in Japan, and improve the site location environment for companies in Japan to encourage companies to locate their production bases domestically. The subsidy will be offered for production bases in the fields of
parts and materials, which constitute the core part of the supply chain and cannot be substituted, as well as high added value growth sectors that will create employment in Japan.

Applications will be accepted until June 1st, 2012. Applications must be submitted in Japanese.

JETRO has prepared a provisional translation of the subsidy information and posted it on the JETRO website.  The criteria are very specific but the offering may be of interest to some members. Please see Application Guidelines for more details.
