In total 150 participants attended the seminars (Kyoto 80 and Osaka 70), and while there were companies from multiple industries, it was the number of attendees from machinery, electronics, trading and wholesale industries that stood out. Almost 55% of the companies who attended these events had not yet started any business in India and were looking for information. However, we found that the ratio of companies already doing business in India has increased compared to attendees of the previous seminars organized. We also understand that these companies are facing a variety of issues with the businesses they have established in India. The seminars combined overviews of trade with India from experts, with networking opportunities and one-to-one meetings with companies on request.
