Heavy industries like shipbuilding, steel, and machinery are based here to form the heart of Hanshin industrial zone, which later grew into a leading industrial city in Japan. Global industry giants are still headquartered here in Kobe. The city is also aggressively introducing industry-academic cooperation as seen in medical industry initiatives, venture development, investment promotions and so forth.
