Invest In Japan

INVEST JAPAN, A one-stop online service centre


Whereas most major western countries actively attract foreign direct investment (FDI), in Japan the level of FDI is comparatively quite low. Foreign direct investment (FDI) introduces technologies and management know-how, brings in new products and services that stimulate competition and the formation of new markets, invigorates the economy and creates employment.

Japan now actively encourages foreign direct investment into the country and has introduced many de-regulations to make it easier for foreigner companies to do business there. Now, there is also a unique one-stop centre for foreign companies to obtain information, consultation and support for setting up business in Japan.

Information related to set up an representative office, branch or susidiary in Japan (regulations, taxation, etc) are available at the website below:

Investment Seminar and exhibition


JETRO Singapore has been organising a seminar every year since 2001 to help create greater awareness of investment and business opportunities in Japan, and to offer ideas and relevant information that will be useful for local companies that are exploring the Japan market for the first time.

The annual “Doing Business in Japan Seminar" is co-organised with International Enterprise (IE) Singapore and Japanese local authorities represented in the region, and the Singapore Manufacturers’ Federation (SMa).

The event allows local entrepreneurs and businessmen to find out more about how to invest and do business in Japan, and to avoid pitfalls by learning from companies that have succeeded there. Participants also have the opportunity to meet prospective Japanese partners to explore business possibilities and receive advice from the prefectures and cities participating in the accompanying Japanese Local Authorities Showcase. Separate Business Consultation and Business Matching sessions allow participants to meet with their Japanese counterparts to discuss and explore business opportunities.

Besides Doing Business in Japan Seminar, JETRO also participated in exhibitions such as MTA, Food and Hotel Asia and Global Entrepolis.
