Defense and Security Technology Forum

7th. German-Japanese Defense and Security Technology Forum 2019

For the seventh time the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan, with the support of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Tokyo, is organizing the German-Japanese Defense and Security Technology Forum.
On the 17th of July 2017, the government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the government of Japan signed an agreement concerning the transfer of defense equipment and technology, which represents an important step for further intensifying the cooperation between both nations concerning security and defense related topics. In 2018, the number of Japanese exhibitors has increased showing an increased interest in identifying opportunities of bilateral industrial cooperation.
Since its start in 2013, as the German-Japanese Defense Symposium, this forum has attracted almost 1,000 industry professionals in 2018. Exceeding the original purpose of the Forum in establishing a common basis for closer cooperation in research, development, procurement and use of security and defense equipment, the German-Japanese Defense and Security Technology Forum has become an established platform for ocial entities and industry experts.
Following the trend of the last two years, “German-Japanese Cooperation” will be the theme of this year’s Forum again. Beside companies involved in security and defense related industries, the Forum will be of interest to trading companies, ministries and government agencies at central and local level, police, national and civil defense bodies, addressing also modern risks related to cybersecurity and networking technologies.
All exhibitions, subject-specic lectures and presentations on advanced technologies, services and specialist knowledge are presented in the new and modernized environment at Sola City Ochanomizu, which has been well received by the visitors in 2018.
The Forum promises to be a rich and current source of valuable information. Join us in extending the German-Japanese Cooperation in 2019 and beyond.

Location: sola city conference Center, Tokyo
