Japan is well known as a country, from where a wealth of goods is exported to Europe. As a leading economy, it is also a significant target for companies, looking for new markets and business development opportunities.
Although the country is likely to be high on the wish list of many businesses, actual entry into the market is renowned for being challenging. On the other hand, European goods are more fashionable and desirable than ever before for consumers in the Far East, and not the least in Japan. Also in Europe, goods of Japanese origin become more and more attractive from year to year. Many are tempted to move into this market.
Good preparation and advice/mentoring by people with inside knowledge about the way, in which the Japanese business community operates and which high expectations are to be met, may prove to be invaluable. We therefore recommend you to have a look at the web site of Japan Connection, offering unique Japanese business knowledge.
