As already written in a previous post, I had the call with the Department that deals with partnerships for Osaka city.
They typically connect businesses in the Osaka city area with other businesses intending to operate in Osaka city as well.
They are very happy and welcome to partner with Astar Network, but more than that, they are also willing to do in-depth studies on how to integrate Astar Network into all of Osaka Municipality. I gave them the example of Fukuoka and briefly explained what EVM, WASM are and how parachains work and what the role of Astar Network is within Web3 and as a Polkadot parachain.
I forwarded everything to Kyoka Nakamura, and also forwarded the contact details of the person I spoke to. However, I have not received an answer. I kindly ask to be contacted.
I also specify that in Switzerland I have recently made many calls with Private Equity funds and trust companies that wants to invest money inside crypto projects in Europe for clients that are no-EU residents, and also I started an official collaboration with one of the largest Italian Private Bankers, also sponsor of the Yacht Club of the city of Bari. I make myself available, once Astar Network has consolidated in every single Japanese reality, as Japan is the priority, but afterwards, I make myself available to act as a bridge with Europe, and also to collaborate with all the Teams in the European area. I also have personal contacts within the European Parliament and the Senate of the Italian Republic.
I repeat bluntly, I am sure that myself and the people I follow and collaborate in Europe, with the Astar Network Team, have many values in common.
