LET'S INVEST IN JAPAN!
JAPAN – The World's 3rd Biggest Economy.
Japan is transforming and evolving – the world’s third largest economy is actively opening its doors to foreign businesses and is creating the best possible environment for overseas investors, supported by former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s pro-global business policy known as "Abenomics".
This is one of the main factors that has increased foreign direct investment (FDI) in Japan since 2011, with inward FDI stock hitting a record high in 2017. In 2019, The Global Competitiveness Report ranked Japan the sixth most globally competitive country in the world, citing the nation’s large market size, business sophistication, quality of local suppliers, and strong international distribution controls as some of its most outstanding business features. Of the Fortune Global 500 companies, 52 are headquartered in Japan.
For companies seeking to establish a regional headquarters, Japan’s geographic location also makes it ideal for conducting business between Japan and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region. Flights from Japan to surrounding cities (Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Sydney) are short, affordable, and often available several times throughout the day, making it easier for businesses to plan trips around normal work hours.
In addition to its positive economic outlook, the structural reform introduced a corporate stewardship code, which greatly enhanced disclosures and monitoring practice. Thus providing Japan with an edge against its competitors, as shareholders gains more attention from companies, as well as being better cared for.
Moreover, Japan’s internal stability and political stability should not be overlooked, as it is one of the appealing points for foreign investors, as well as being one of the safest region to travel in for work or business.
Investors outside of Japan are beginning to pay close attention to the Japanese market due to all the positives of structural reform, as well as political stability. Indeed, it is believed that Japan is far more stable than the U.S. and China, which are currently locking horns in a trade war, and the European Union, which has been thrown into turmoil since the Brexit vote in 2016. Despite all this, Japanese equities remain under bought, leaving an opening for investors looking for safety, stability, dividend income and select growth opportunities.
