TOKYO – About 20 mid- to high-ranking government officials, top managers, and business leaders in charge of energy efficiency are scheduled to convene in Tokyo from 26 to 30 January 2015 for a multicountry observational study mission on Energy Efficiency. The mission, organized by the Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation of Japan Productivity Center and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, will be represented by 14 countries from across the Asia-Pacific region, including the Philippines.
The main objective of the mission is to share Japan’s energy-efficient technologies and examine their applicability in participating countries throughout the Asia-Pacific. Experts from Germany, India, and Japan will lead discussions on Japan’s energy-efficiency promotion schemes and policies, best practices, and technologies that contribute to a sustainable society. The mission will include visits to leading Japanese companies including Zeon Corporation which exemplify best practices in energy efficiency, and ENEX 2015/Smart Energy Japan 2015, an exhibition that will provide business-matching and networking opportunities for participants and exhibitors.
There will be two (2) representatives from the Philippines.
