Bio Japan 2018


With more than one-fourths of the population aged 65 or older, Japan is the fastest greying nation in the world. The ageing society causes great challenges but also creates business opportunities for Dutch companies and research institutes active in the biotechnology industry. For this reason, the Embassy of the Netherlands to Japan once again organizes* a Holland Pavilion at the fair Bio Japan, which will take place from 10-12 October 2018 in Pacifico Yokohama. Signup now!
