Business Opportunities in the Land of the Rising Sun - Export to Japan

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.

Discover how your business can take advantage of the potential this market offers by joining us for this breakfast briefing on Wednesday 10 June at Kettering Park Hotel and Spa, Northamptonshire.

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), this event will provide you with:

  • An insight into what’s currently happening in the market
  • An overview of the business opportunities in a variety of sectors
  • Practical advice on accessing the market and overcoming the challenges it poses
  • Language and cultural considerations for building successful working relationships
  • Access to the support available to help your business go further in this dynamic market

Don’t overlook the opportunities that Japan has to offer and book a place today!
