Japan

Why Japan?

Japan has world-class infrastructure, a highly-skilled workforce and a culture of innovation that makes the world's third largest economy an attractive destination for doing business. With a population of 127 million, Japan's domestic market has enormous purchasing power, especially from the large cashed-up middle class.

Strategically located as a gateway to Asia, Japan has a vibrant research and development sector, with the highest number of researchers per 10,000 people of any country in the world.

Japan is politically stable and the government is actively encouraging foreign investment as the country recovers from the "lost decades" of deflation. Of the Fortune Global 500 companies, 57 have their headquarters in Japan.
