This guide provides insight into crucial aspects of doing business in Japan and advice on how to succeed in a very difficult market. It follows the process from initial contact, to the first visit, to the creation of a fully fledged operation in Japan. Emphasis is placed on how to break into the distribution system, set up a local company, acquire an existing company, recruit and manage Japanese personnel and co-operate or compete with Japanese companies. There are also tips on how to avoid common traps and pitfalls for the unwary investor.
What the papers say:
