JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) is one of the biggest government-affiliated organizations in Japan. Their aim is to ensure mutual trade and investment between Japanese organizations and businesses with the rest of the world.

JETRO’s goals include assisting Small and Medium Sized Organizations (SMEs) in Japan to enable them to tap into the wider foreign market by facilitating business partnerships while contributing to the overall economic growth of Japan.

Our Partnership: Unlocking opportunities for Japanese companies to expand their network in UAE
AladdinB2B first met JETRO in 2021 during Gitex where they witnessed our B2B matchmaking services and were impressed with the results. Based on our performance, JETRO enlisted the matchmaking services of AladdinB2B to target different clients and industries for Japanese businesses. They wanted exclusive meetings and custom matchmaking between different Japanese organizations hailing from different sectors. The goal was to ensure they were matched with prospective partners to maximize their global export and business expansion.

Initially, Jetro commissioned AladdinB2B to provide a comprehensive online business matchmaking service for Japanese healthcare manufacturers seeking to expand their network with UAE distributors. The AladdinB2B team succeeded in introducing a tailored list of prospects to a large number of Japanese companies within the frame time requested by the client.

The next stage of the project took place during GITEX 2022, where our team prepared the ground to provide in-person meetings for Japanese technology startups and worldwide investors. With careful planning and execution, we were able to ensure that these meetings were productive and beneficial for all parties involved.

After yet another successful round of valuable B2B meetings and receiving positive feedback from the Japanese startups, we were thrilled to have gained the trust of Jetro and secured additional partnerships with them.

For the last year, Jetro continued endorsing more projects to us with new Japanese affiliate companies looking for introduction opportunities with foreign businesses.

We are proud to say that we have maintained our strong relationship with Jetro and we are committed to delivering exceptional results in securing high-level meetings that meet the specific search criteria of Japanese businesses.

"We partnered with Aladdin B2B for business matching to our exhibitors in GITEX North Star 2022; I could say we have maximized the benefit to the exhibitors with Aladdin's support to arrange one-to-one meetings with each of the requested business categories. We continue to frequently request Aladdin B2B for business development and meeting set-up on a case-by-case basis, they have been very accurate and persistent in reaching out to the targeted businesses. The team is qualified and organized despite the multiple requests assigned, it has been responded to efficiently. "
