Japan offers a lot to companies looking to stake a claim in the world’s third largest economy. Japan enjoys political and economic stability; cutting-edge private and public research institutions; strong IP protection, and highly developed transportation and communications infrastructures.

The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a nonprofit government agency funded by the Japanese Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry. JETRO promotes trade and investment between Japan and other countries. JETRO assist U.S. companies in successfully establishing a presence in Japan – e.g. opening a branch office – by providing a variety of business development resources: incubator space in Tokyo and 5 other Japanese cities; consultation with legal, tax, HR, and technology experts, participation in the Japan Business Partner Matching Program, and more at no cost.
