     Mr. Jirath Pavaravadhana, Co-CEO of Vertex Asia Corporation Co., Ltd., revealed: “we realize the popularity of Japan which steadily grow in the ASEAN market, particularly in Thailand. According to the statistic of Japan National Tourism Organization in 2014, there were 657,600 Thai visitors to Japan. And this year, it is expected that the number of Thai visitors will skyrocket by 45 percent. The launch of ‘CONNECT JAPAN 2015’ not only showcases the popular activities in Japan, but also reflects the Japanese art and culture as well as amazing unseen destinations in Japan to let Thai people who have never been in Japan or those who have been there but only visited the popular tourist attractions. What we introduce you today is truly a ‘REAL JAPAN’. If you have never spent your life in Japan before, of course, you would have never witnessed these incredible unseen wonders.”

 
     
In addition to ‘CONNECT JAPAN 2015’, Vertex Asia has also initiated another ongoing project to enhance Business-to-Business (B2B) between Japanese and Thai investors including Tokyo Runway Shop, Many Asia and Rose Stage. Besides this, Vertex Asia also promotes Business-to-Government (B2G) with the cooperation between Chiang Mai and Okayama to launch ‘onsen’ project to showcase the authentic Japanese-style hot spring in Chiang Mai.
