UNIDO ITPO Tokyo and Kawasaki City jointly organized a virtual guided tour as part of the programmes at the 13th Kawasaki International Eco-Tech Fair which took place in the online format. The event was organized on 27 January 2021, for the embassy diplomats from developing and emerging countries based in Tokyo.
Under the COVID-19 situation, the 13th Kawasaki International Eco-Tech Fair was organized online for the first time from 21 January to 5 February 2021, and the guided tour for diplomats which had been organized physically in the past years was switched to be held online, as well. The 5 exhibiting Japanese companies introduced their business and explained about their ecological and innovative technologies, followed by active Q&A sessions.
After the event, questionnaires were collected from the participants and it turned out that embassy diplomats positively evaluated the first-ever online event, particularly because it provided them with opportunities to get to know about a variety of promising Japanese technologies without physically paying a visit to the exhibition site. 22 representatives from 19 embassies participated in the virtual guided tour.
