Geospatial World Chamber of Commerce (GWCC) is organizing the 1st India-Japan Geospatial and Space Business Summit on November 16, 2022 as part of GeoSmart India conference at Hyderabad International Convention Centre in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. The strengthening of the QUAD group (India, the USA, Japan, and Australia) is further seen as a successful measure of the bilateral strength between the two countries.

Expanding our outreach and engagement, we have been in discussions with stakeholders of Japanese geospatial and space industries, and propose to organize our first round of India-Japan Geospatial and Space Business Summit. The one day summit shall witness participation from the key stakeholders from government agencies, civil society, private sector, and academia and research fraternity from both the countries – Japan and India. GWCC endeavours towards facilitating strategic dialogue between the two countries strengthening India-Japan Geospatial and Space Business Partnership.

GWCC further strives to build on the mandate of Governments to provide broader framework of cooperation and develop an enabling environment of ease of doing business in their respective countries. This would further boost confidence of commercial companies to co-invest and embark on long term pathways for sustainable and profitable partnerships.

The One day Summit strives to strengthen not only the bilateral relations between the two countries in the context of Geospatial and Space eco systems keeping the Geo Political order in view, but also strengthening of the QUAD group (India, the USA, Japan, and Australia). The Summit facilitates dialogue across Industry insights, policy reforms, technologies towards creating a holistic business relations based on Trade and Commerce.
