African Seminar November 9 – Report
Our firm partner, Mr Shinji Sumida, was proud to be the lecturer at a FN Seminar organized by FN Communications (金融ファクシミリ新聞社) held on November 9, 2016 in Tokyo.
Thanks to the organizers, Mr Sumida was able to share his knowledge and insights on African business and law during the two-hour seminar session. The seminar focused on gateway into Africa, investment incentives, commercial law, risks and other practical consideration on the following main topics:
- Overview of doing business in Africa
- Cote d’ivoire (Ivory Coast)
We hope that this will mark the beginning of our firm’s engagement in the community to further understanding regarding Africa and its potentials.
A quick comment from Mr Sumida after the seminar:
I believe that the legal industry needs to evolve from the traditional and common perception that we only provide legal services upon request. I see our service in the future to be: creating solutions to difficulties and risks in business and construct flexible business models by consultation with specialists. We will grow with the growth of collaborators and partnerships both in business and other industries. Thank you to everyone involved in today’s seminar.
