The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) has recently been made aware of the fact that an unknown party has been holding itself out as a government agent to purchase products for the Ministry.

MITI would like to advise that this is a scam and no such agent has been appointed by the Ministry. The public is advised to exercise due diligence when evaluating any such proposals received through email.
