The Netherlands Embassy in Tokyo is organising the NL Semiconductor Roadshow in Japan on 25 October 2022. The goal is to bring together different Dutch semiconductor companies with presence in Japan.

Key points of discussion

  • Discuss Dutch semiconductor and high tech policy and position the NL semiconductor ecosystem in Japan (consisting of companies and institutions) both within and outside of the EU Chip-Act
  • Increase visibility of the NL Semiconductor ecosystem in Japan by establishing a Dutch/European semiconductor brand
  • Build meaningful and future-oriented connections with governmental institutions, knowledge institutes, and startups
  • Create partnerships and research communities through R&D activities with knowledge institutes to attract talent and help grow in Japan (and beyond)


Semiconductor technology is at the heart of technological and digital developments in virtually every sector. The semiconductor industry is therefore a key industry for the digital and green transition, with major social and economic interests. The Netherlands and Japan are two of only three countries that have the complete semiconductor value chain within their borders.

Leadership in this field serves a public interest, especially in the most advanced semiconductor technologies. Accordingly, strategic dependencies are not without risk for the economic security and open strategic autonomy of the Netherlands and Japan. The semiconductor value chain is extremely globalised, and therefore largely dependent on open trade and good international cooperation.

The Dutch government strongly supports efforts to reinforce its position in the semiconductor sector and sees the strengthening of international value chains as an important part of this. And that is at the heart of the NL Semiconductor Roadshow in Japan.

Innovation Mission to Japan 2023

This event is part of a series of bilateral events, with the purpose to deepen mutual understanding of strengths and ambitions in The Netherlands and Japan in the fields of semicon. Both countries have ambitions to strengthen their relations in these fields. To address crossovers, we invite professionals from three areas (government, knowledge institutes and sector) to these events. The series of events paves the way to an Innovation Mission to Japan in Q1 of 2023.
