Imajin Enhances Automotive Collaboration Between Indonesia and Japan Through Station Ai

Tangerang, September 21, 2023 - Station Aichi (Station Ai) collaborates with BLOCK 71 Singapore to support the development of the automotive manufacturing industry through the Market Immersion Program. The event was held on September 13-14, 2023 in Nagoya. Station Ai provides a platform for companies globally to understand and have access to enter the Japanese market so they are willing to invest their businesses in Aichi Prefecture.


Station Ai has a strategy designed by the government of Aichi Prefecture to encourage national and international companies to develop their businesses in Aichi Prefecture. The government of Aichi Prefecture is forming a network to support business development by organizing events such as seminars, workshops, and other business meetings. Aichi Prefecture is a manufacturing hub, and many global companies have branches or even headquarters in Nagoya in many industries, such as automotive, aerospace, and electronics. Therefore, the Japanese government supports Aichi Prefecture to open new opportunities for domestic and global companies to develop their businesses in Nagoya.


Citing from SoftBank News, the Governor of Aichi Prefecture, Hideaki Omura, supports the development of Aichi Prefecture by forming Station Ai as a facility to help develop a startup and a world innovation center.

"Startups play an important role in the future of Japan since economic growth in Japan has stalled due to slow digitalization, and there are only a few unicorn companies in Japan," said Hideaki Omura.

The event was held from June 23 to 30, 2022. At that time, Imajin was an Indonesian representative chosen by the Ministry of Industry of Republic Indonesia at the Japan Autoparts Business event.
