The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is looking for Atlanta technology, software and multimedia companies interested in meeting with a delegation of Japanese executives from Nagano in November.
The delegation will consist of about 30 Japanese executives, representing 25 high-tech Nagano companies with an interest in importing new technology products into Japan.
Atlanta is paired with Nagano as part of JETRO’s Regional Information Exchange Project, which aims to facilitate technological exchange between Japan and the U.S. at local levels of government, universities and the private sector.
An earlier group from Nagano visited Atlanta in January and met with representatives from the Georgia Institute of Technology and the American Electronics Association.
JETRO Atlanta is already working with 15 Atlanta companies interested in participating in the November meeting, but would like to add about 20 more companies to the group.
For more information about this project, call Andy Seiden at (404) 681-0600.
The Atlanta office of Hunton & Williams announced last week that Tomasz Kacymirow, a well-known Polish tax attorney formerly with KPMG Peat Marwick in Poland, has joined the law firm’s Warsaw office as a partner.
A spokesman said that the Warsaw office plans to add five more tax attorneys to its staff this year so that it can develop its mergers and acquisitions business in Poland. Hunton & Williams handled the first takeover of a public company in Poland, he said.
By the year 2000, Hunton & Williams expects to have 60 lawyers in Poland with a focus on tax, corporate, securities, energy, telecommunications, labor, real estate and banking.
Mr. Kacymirow spent the past six years heading the tax department of KPMG in Warsaw.
