The mission of UNIDO ITPO Tokyo is to help developing and emerging countries and economies in transition in their efforts to achieve inclusive and sustainable economic development by promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) and technology transfer from Japan through various activities including delegate programme (invitation of government officials to Japan), technology transfer (identifying and promoting Japanese energy and environment technologies), seminars and events (country promotion, sector promotion, environment exhibitions), capacity building (special programmes for embassies in Japan), and activities overseas (business missions and networking).

Sector wise the coverage is also wide, including manufacturing industries, agro-based industries, environment and energy related industries,, as well as promotion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
