FOURIN, Inc. started a cooperative relationship with OICA (In French: Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles. In English: International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers) in January 2013.

In an effort to acquire accurate monthly surveys and comprehensive overview of global vehicle sales, OICA has asked FOURIN for regular research cooperation regarding data of non-OICA-member countries, especially in Asia. Data provided by FOURIN is posted on OICA's website.

For this reason, on April 11, 2013, FOURIN's Vice President Kubo Tetsuo paid a courtesy visit to OICA headquarters to meet OICA executives.
