Mid-tier Enterprises and SMEs


Japanese mid-tier enterprises (MTEs) and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are proactively expanding their business overseas with an aim to increasing business opportunities by meeting demand in foreign markets, while responding to the needs of large Japanese companies for local procurement in their global supply chain.

To adapt to the diversifying needs of Japanese MTEs and SMEs, JBIC provides them with not only funding support, but also other various assistance including distribution of information about overseas investment environment and strengthening of partnership with related parties in a project host country by signing a memorandum of understanding with its government agencies and local financial institutions.
