GOOSE is a COSME (EU) funded project exploring public procurement opportunities in 6 non-EU markets

Webinar: Public procurement in Japan

Cross-border tendering is a challenge, arguably, even within the EU’s single market, not to mention in third countries. However, with the right preparation, this is not impossible.
Here the project GOOSE can help you. It is an EU-funded project that offers unique services, such as tender tracking alerts, country and sector specific webinars, mentoring services, and meet-the-buyer missions to target countries.

Target countries: Chile, Colombia, Norway, Serbia, Japan, and Vietnam.
Target sectors: green economy, ICT, smart city, and smart health.

This year we bring you a series of webinars to take a closer look at the public procurement opportunities and peculiarities of these target countries. In the first part of the series, we focus on the Japanese market.

17th March 2022 at 9.30 AM CET to 12 PM on Zoom.
