Doing Business in Japan has Never Been Easier
The Japanese market is characterised by consumers with high levels of disposable income who are drawn to premium, high-end goods and services. Japanese companies often exhibit a global outlook and a willingness to invest long-term in viable products and services. Japan is synonymous with quality and innovation and this goes hand-in-hand with Japanese companies’ commitment and loyalty to business partners. Furthermore, for many foreign companies, Japan has also become the place for development of new products and concepts.
The Japanese Market has Become Extremely Accessible for UK Companies Looking to Export to Japan
While Japan does have a well established domestic market in many sectors, there is an exoticness and status associated with Western brands that drives Japanese consumer demand for Western products and services. Moreover, Japan’s business culture isn’t as challenging as many businesses believe – patience, integrity, respect for their business customs and a long term view to business success are the main ingredients to success in Japan. In addition, Japan‘s business culture attaches a high degree of importance to personal relationships and these take time to establish and nurture. A strong network of personal contacts is vital in the Japanese market.
