Investing in Japan & Collaboration with Japan


Welcome to the JETRO United Kingdom page.

Alongside promoting trade relations between Japan and the UK, we also aim to boost foreign direct investment into Japan.

If you have been thinking about setting up an office in Japan, or collaborating with top Japanese corporates, then the investment team is here to assist you.

JETRO London has been involved with Japanese inward investment since 1995. Our senior investment advisor arrived in 1998 and an investment team was formed in 2003, when the Japanese government launched the Invest Japan initiative.

From our office in London, we cover all of the UK, as well as Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Iceland.

Since 2021, a heavy focus has been placed on supporting startups and SMEs with innovative technology that can contribute to Japan’s 2050 Net Zero goals, and boosting digital transformation in Japan.

Using our free services, our clients can get a variety of support from market research, in depth assistance from our labour, tax and legal advisors and industry specialists, as well as benefitting from the opportunity to use free office space in a variety of locations across Japan to expand into the Japanese market.

We welcome enquiries related to Japanese inward investment from companies in the areas we cover. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions and we can arrange a meeting.
