News & Benchmarks

VELTRA.com, a global online tour and activity booking service based in Tokyo, has announced its decision to set up a business base in Luxembourg. Focussing on promoting a global activity marketplace for tours all over the world, VELTRA is not only a world leading company in this field, but is also going to start branding new IT services of photo SNS to accelerate further growth of the company. The Luxembourg-based company (tentative name: VELTRA Lux) will not only consolidate administrative functions of VELTRA's existing offices in the world, but will also coordinate strategic business planning and marketing execution for global customers. VELTRA Lux is the 3rd office established in Europe, after the company set up subsidiaries in Paris and London, ensuring that all the marketing activities are being done locally. VELTRA Lux will play a rather strategic role for the entire VELTRA group, while providing many benefits to current travel business as well. Currently VELTRA boasts over 12,000 tours in 300 destinations, on their Japanese and English website. VELTRA also plans to launch a Chinese language site within a year.  During his official visit in Japan, Prime Minister and Minister for Communications and Media Xavier Bettel welcomed the establishment of Veltra as an example of the close ties that have strengthened between Japan and Luxembourg over the years and that continue to be fostered by regular contact, such as the four-day working visit of Xavier Bettel to Tokyo that starts today. Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Economy Étienne Schneider stated: "I am particularly delighted to see that the management team of Veltra Corporation has chosen Luxembourg as its location to implement the strategic functions for the European market. The consistent and dynamic economic development policy of the Government to put in place a state-of-the-art ICT ecosystem for startup companies has significantly contributed to Luxembourg’s key role as a gateway for Japanese companies. I am proud that we can now add Veltra as a new member to the Japanese business community in Luxembourg that includes not only financial institutions, but also players like Rakuten, Fanuc or Nomura Research Institute." About VELTRA Corporation VELTRA is an online tour and activity booking service based in Tokyo that connects travellers to memorable and unique local experiences. Founded in 1991, it has grown from a service primarily aimed at the Japanese market to a global tour provider with branches in Honolulu, London, Paris and Malaysia. Now, as a champion of the Japanese market, VELTRA is targeting global customers, not only for the travel market, but also for the broader market such as SNS. Press release by the Ministry of the Economy
The Ministry for the Economy is offering an online self-assessment tool for use by SMEs in the craft or commercial sector. The electronic platform, which can be accessed at www.business-check.lu, identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the business concerned on the basis of data provided by the user, who is asked to fill out a qualitative questionnaire (self-assessment of certain topics on a scale of 1 to 5) and to respond to a quantitative request based on various accounting data. By analysing those data as a whole, the tool evaluates the level of maturity of the business in terms of its strategy, organisation, customer management and financial performance. The platform then generates a report on the business as thus evaluated and proposes, where necessary and/or appropriate, ways of improving its performance. As the manager of the tool, the Ministry for the Economy ensures the protection of the data, which can only be recorded on the personal computer of the user, whose identity remains anonymous. No checks are carried out to determine whether the data, and the answers given, are correct. The use of the instrument is free of charge. The platform is available in German, French and English. When an SME, after using the business-check.lu instrument, decides to seek advice from specialist external consultants with a view to improving the way it functions, it may apply for State aid aimed at encouraging investment designed to enhance quality. The aid is granted in the form of capital grants or interest rate subsidies, and amounts to up to 50% of the eligible investment made by an SME in seeking advice from external consultants, but can’t exceed 100,000 euros.
