Greetings from the Japanese Officials
The ONU resident Soknan Han Jung mentioned that the Japan?s Government unfolds four projects in Romania for the women living in the country, in four units within
four counties: Giurgiu, Calarasi Vaslui and Buzau. She also recorded the three
incubators to be established in Brasov, Covasna and Alba.
The Japan?s ambassador at Bucharest spoke Romanian and remarked the collaboration existing between Brasov and Japan through the Cultural Centre Musashino:
?I know how hard it is to get funds from the Japan?s Government. Your success in doing this proves the quality of your documentation. We support the business environment
and strongly recommend the small and medium enterprises to increase their efficiency?.
The Business Incubators are meant to support the newly established small and medium
enterprises with a maximum two years operating period. Within the establishment and development program for business incubators in Romania irredeemable grants will be assigned to support the economical and social development of the interested areas.
The incubators are meant to fit within the regional strategic frame, determined by their economical priorities.
