Doing business with Japan

Oct 21, 2011 | Business, Export, First Edition Translations, Translation

As promoted on these very pages, the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce hosted a fascinating symposium on Wednesday night on doing business with Japan, post-Tsunami.

With a variety of informative and motivating speakers, a major topic was the differences in business cultures between ourselves and Japan and how UK companies can not just get over them, but use them to our mutual advantage. But more about that in a future post – something to look forward to!

Another theme was the transformation of the market. With the devastation that the earthquake and tsunami  left behind, Japan have taken the opportunity not just to replace what was damaged or destroyed, but to re-build and rejuvenate.

This gives UK businesses some great opportunities. Two of the leading industries being developed are renewable energy and health – areas many of our clients are in already. With many incentives to invest, now is definitely time to get involved.

If you are interested in doing business with Japan, a good place to start would be the UKTI – click here to take a look at their website.
