 CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS RESILIENCE -
CHARTING A PATH TOWARDS GREATER
SUPPLY CHAIN SECURITY & SUSTAINABILITY

Critical Minerals Japan Conference and Exhibition is premier international event dedicated to critical minerals which are vital to Japan’s economic security. Without access to these essential materials, Japan’s famous auto and electronics industries will become irrelevant. However, Japan’s strength in high-tech is offset by its lack of these critical resources, making it virtually dependent on imports. Consequently, the nation’s government, trading companies, mining companies, automobile companies, electronics firms, banks, investment funds, and others are all focused on securing new supplies of strategic minerals around the globe. Critical Minerals Japan addresses new technologies, global alliances, end-user demand, national security issues, sustainability, and more, making this event one of the most important in the Indo-Pacific world today.

Critical minerals underpin the future of the Japanese economy.

We anticipate 150 senior level executives for partnering, networking and business matching in Tokyo.

 

Join us at an invaluable platform to get access to agenda covering latest industry pressing issues on multilateral relations & alliances in a critical resource race powering green energy transition, their impact on mining, defense and security industries in Japan, as well as to networking receptions for new partnerships & business opportunities.
