Japan is the largest export country and second largest trading partner for New South Wales. As well as being the base for many of the Japanese companies which operate in Australia, New South Wales also has strong economic ties with Japan in a wide range of sectors including energy, said a statement issued by the embassy of Japan in Canberra.

Ambassador Takahashi through this official visit, reconfirmed the significance of Japan and New South Wales’s longstanding partnership and the importance of continuing to strengthen that relationship in various areas such as energy and infrastructure including, for example, in the development of Western Sydney.
