Webinar 20: Foreign Direct Investment in Japan (Cancelled)

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.

Economic Overview

Japan is the 3rd largest economy in the world. With GDP 1.5 the size of the UK and per capita GDP 6 times that of China, Japan remains the high-tech powerhouse economy of Asia. With the second highest spending worldwide on R&D, a hunger for IP and new trends, and an increasingly globalised outlook, Japanese companies remain amongst the most valuable and technologically advanced in the world. Japan’s major growth driver is exports despite external demand accounting for 16% of its total GDP.

Joint Ventures

The joint venture is one of the most implemented approaches in trying to enter a foreign market, the Japanese one included. Joint ventures are recognized by the Japanese law as subsidiary companies, which can either be a limited or an unlimited partnership.

Mergers & Acquisitions

The Japanese M&A business represents a sector whose importance has been growing in the last few years: already in 2016, the total volume amounted to US$ 198 billion.

Incentives & Subsidies

From generous tax breaks to the potential for an accelerated immigration process, Japan offers many subsidies and incentives to attract foreign investment.

Investment

Japan offers many lucrative business opportunities for potential European investors thanks in part to its large and wealthy consumer market, its position as the world’s third largest economy and its strong innovation capacity.
