Latest UpdatesBusiness climate survey: German Business in Japan 2016 (English)

Jun 20, 2016

International companies that want to start business in Asia often focus on emerging markets with attractive growth rates of 6% or more. Japan does not fit into this pattern – But the new business climate survey "German Business in Japan 2016" clearly show that Japan is a unique business location of strategic value.

The top management of German companies in Japan evaluated not only the future development of the local economy but also provided detailed information on their individual business performance. The results shed new light on the Japanese market and show impressively: once established, companies benefit from the stable environment and can expect high profits.

The study was designed and executed by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industries in Japan (AHK) in cooperation with the Germany Trade and Invest and has been conducted for the first time in 2016. It addressed 348 German firms. As 94 of them answered, a representative response rate of 27% was achieved.
