Meet industry experts to learn how you can start exporting consumer goods to the Japanese market.

Over the last 10 years the UK fashion industry has met the challenge to evolve from a domestic manufacturing based industry into a design-led industry, operating in a global marketplace. However, high end products continue to be made in the UK and 'Made in Britain' is still a strong sales point.

The retail sector plays an important part in the UK economy, contributing 5% to GDP. UKTI can offer strategic support, tailored to this sector. Our support is focused on helping the UK retail sector win more business internationally and securing more valuable investment in the UK.

Japan is one of the world’s largest fashion markets. It leads the market in Asia, and other countries in the region look to Japanese trends. Outside the EU, Japan is the second largest export destination after the US for the British fashion industry.
