TOKYO – A U.S. Department of Commerce Financial Technologies Business Development Mission of nine U.S. financial companies visited Japan November 13-14 with the goal of building new commercial relationships. During the trade mission, U.S. firms were introduced to potential partners looking to source U.S. financial technologies and services in the Indo-Pacific region. After the Japan visit, the mission stopped in Singapore and South Korea.

The mission participants represented innovative U.S. companies at the intersection of financial services, financial technology, payments, regulatory fintech, and sustainable financial technology. It also advanced the Biden-Harris Administration’s focus on enhancing U.S. trade ties across the Indo-Pacific region with the goal of delivering and advancing U.S. technology, standards, and commercial interests in this vital region of the world.

During the mission, U.S. participants gained market insights, made industry contacts, solidified business strategies, advocated for enabling policies, and advanced specific projects with key Japanese decision-makers in governmental and non-governmental organizations.

Japanese businesses interested in finding U.S. goods and services suppliers are encouraged to contact the U.S. Commercial Service team in Japan.
