Background to the Event
If you are looking to do business in Japan then this breakfast event is an excellent place to start. The morning will provide information on the opportunities and challenges for UK companies interested in trading with this dynamic market.
Japan is the third-largest market in the world, with a GDP per capita eight times that of China. With British exports worth an impressive £9.4 billion a year, split evenly between goods and services, it makes Japan the UK's 7th largest market on a value added basis.
Japanese consumers are big spenders, highly educated and demand the highest standards. In this increasingly globalised market, the use of English is becoming widespread, a growing number of young entrepreneurs are challenging traditional practices and trade links with China are huge and growing. Importantly, IP is well protected, with fewer surprises for foreign businesses.
