Have you thought about investing in Japan?

JETRO outline in their report called “Why Japan” (2017) 5 key reasons why you should consider investing in Japan.

1. Growing economy

  • Japanese economy steadily recovering from deflation

  • Corporate governance
  • Deregulation and structural reform
  • Promotion of inward foreign direct investment (FDI)
  • Government actively promoting FDI
  • Attracting overseas visitors to Japan

2. Sophisticated market

This is a massive drawing card for Japan.

  • World’s 3rd largest GDP
  • Attractive market for foreign companies

  • Tokyo is the city with the world’s largest population
  • Sophisticated customers set world standards

  • Innovation from Japanese companies
