It will be opened to the public, and METI wishes that people who are interested in such measures in Asia and in business expansion to other countries will participate.

In addition to the open seminar above, the ACBS will provide a private dialogue among related people from the governments and related organizations on October 22, and participants will discuss specific future approaches concerning the industry based on the results of the open seminar.
