First-ever Czech Company to Invest in Japan Presents at Investment Forum

Moravia Worldwide, a leading globalization solution provider, announced today it has presented its successes and experiences with investing in Japan to a group of business executives and investors who accompanied the Czech Prime Minister on his official visit to Japan. As the first-ever Czech-owned enterprise that has opened a production facility in Japan, Moravia was asked by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) to provide the unique case-study perspective of the specific approach taken in establishing a presence in Japan, and the assistance provided by JETRO in the process.

During his meeting with the Moravia representatives in Tokyo, the Czech Prime Minister, Mr. Jiri Paroubek, congratulated Moravia Worldwide on its bold investment and wished the Moravia team success.

Since its opening in Tokyo in May 2004, Moravia has established a strong footprint in the Japanese market with its growing team of highly qualified professionals. Moravia's Japanese office has contributed to a continued revenue growth for the company through Japanese software localization and testing services for Moravia's global and Japanese customers.

Terukazu Konishi, the Managing Director and Director of Sales for Moravia in Japan, commented: "We are very happy to share our success in Japan with the Czech Prime Minister and his delegation and to present our experiences to JETRO. The support from JETRO that Moravia received has been invaluable and we strongly believe in the mission and the approach that JETRO has in encouraging and facilitating inward foreign investment to Japan."

"We are proud to be the first Czech investment in Japan," commented Arturo Quintero, Corporate Strategy Director of Moravia Worldwide, "just like we were one of the first Czech-owned companies to establish a presence in countries such as Ireland and China in the past. We see the rapid success of our Japanese office as validation of the strength of our strategy and the quality of our teams worldwide."

Momoko Nakazawa, Chief of Invest Japan Business Support Center at JETRO's Tokyo office, commented: "We strongly believe Moravia will continue in its successful development in Japan and we hope to be able to support more Czech companies' investment in Japan in the future."
