Globe Bulk Services has hosted a Japanese business forum in Singapore to showcase its trading capabilities and boost its business contacts in Japan.

A group of prominent Japanese business leaders from the medical, pharmaceutical, luxury food and agricultural industries arrived from Tokyo and convened at the GBS Singapore headquarters.

After days of careful deliberation the congregation final came to a close and was heralded a success by both participants and organizers. GBS will import and bring to market an extensive array of successful Japanese products.

This marks a first for Singapore consumers and is a milestone in the GBS trading history. GBS’s shipping, logistics, freight handling and importation of consumables expertise paved the way for a fully functional trading arm that already trades extensively with minerals in the Philippines.

With new links forged, further growth in trading throughout the region is now imminent and the company is braced for this surge in productivity. With permanent representation in Tokyo, Japan GBS is on target for the establishment of a fully operational regional hub office in Japan by the end of the calendar year.
