The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a government-related organization that works to cultivate mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO’s core focus shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small- to medium-sized Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.


The Japanese government established the Japan Food Product Overseas Promotion Center (JFOODO) in 2017 as part of (JETRO) with the aim of boosting the export of Japanese agricultural, forestry, fishery, and food products by branding them and promoting them widely around the world.
