The pre-trade fair for the Okinawa Great Trade Fair, the largest international business convention for food suppliers in Japan, started at the Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan on November 14.

Twenty-three buyers from outside Okinawa and 79 from abroad took part in the two-day event. Seventy companies from Okinawa and another 61 from outside the prefecture participated in the fair to promote their products.

At the opening ceremony, Kunio Oroku, the head of the fair’s executive committee, said, “International trade has been developing dramatically. We need to apply ourselves to new challenges in human and commodity-level exchange in Asia.”

Okinawa Vice Governor Kurayoshi Takara read a statement on behalf of Governor Hirokazu Nakaima. He said, “Okinawa used to be a ‘Bridge between nations’ in the Ryukyu Kingdom era, so we want the prefecture to use its geographical advantages to become an international hub.” Takara continued, “We hope that the fair will contribute to promoting economic development in Japan and Asia.”

A symposium focusing on Okinawa’s vision for the logistics hub followed the fair.
