Would you like to create products that will challenge the world together with companies in Yao City?如果有這個機會，你要不要與八尾市的企業攜手，共同創作挑戰世界的作品呢？
These are Yao City companies that have supported Japanese manufacturing from the ground up and have created all kinds of household goods and industrial products. Although they have superior technologies, these have not been introduced to the world.
In order to break out of such a situation, we will create original products that make use of the technological capabilities we have cultivated and aim to expand into various markets around the world over the next few years.
Therefore, together with companies in Yao City, we appeal to creators who will take on the world.
The stage for the first year is Taiwan.首年的舞台就在「台灣」
Taiwan is a region that has brisk exchanges and strong cultural affinities with Japan. It is also attracting attention as a foothold for expanding into the People’s Republic of China and Southeast Asia.
In Taiwan, we will work together with Yao City companies to study the lifestyles of the locals and create products that seamlessly become part of their lives.
About the YAOYA PROJECTYAOYA PROJECT是什麼?
The YAOYA PROJECT is a project to make Yao manufacturing known to the world. The word YAOYA likens Yao manufacturing, which can produce a wide range of things, to a greengrocer, YAOYA in Japanese (literally, “a supplier of 800 things”). It fits Yao manufacturing, which has delivered good and seasonal things with sure judgment. In addition, the name Yao itself means the locality of Yao, which is aligned with commercial and industrial agriculture. It also represents Yao manufacturing that has supported and enriched the lives of Japanese people at close quarters.
