We regret to announce that this webinar has been cancelled until further notice. We will do our best to ensure that this webinar will be offered again as part of our webinar series in the near future. Thank you for your understanding.

Where is the most suitable location for my investment in Japan in terms of industry clusters?

This Webinar provides an overview about the distribution of industries in Japan based on the data of 3000 Japanese listed companies that employ about 15 million people, which is equivalent to about one quarter of the total workforce in Japan. The data has been extracted from the Bloomberg Professional service and reflects the latest insights into the current status of the regional distribution of firms in Japan.  This webinar enables decision makers in companies, seeking the most advantageous location within Japan for setting up a subsidiary, to derive insights on the locational distribution of potential customers (B2B) or specialized subcontractors and to find the most advantageous location to benefit from this potential.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to find the most suitable location for setting up a subsidiary in Japan.
