The first-ever Japanese health expo will be launched at Tatmadaw hall in Yangon city next month in a bid to create new business links between Myanmar and Japan, organisers said.
Organised by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), the three-day expo is set to take place from March 21 to March 23, covering a wide range of fields, including sports, health management services, drugstores, healthy food, beauty, nursing care and hospital by 87 Japanese firms and organisations via more than 100 booths.
The organisers said the event will help promote Japan’s image as a forerunner in health and longevity products among Myanmar people and to help establish local business bases for Japanese firms.
Director Kenji Mizuta of JETRO said, “I believe that the expo will contribute to expanding the lifespan and improve the health environment for Myanmar people of all generations in the future.”
JETRO is planning to host the same event in other ASEAN countries following Myanmar.
