Japan's Foreign Investment 2022

Since the Covid-19 epidemic started to spread in late 2019, many things have altered in the world as we know it, including overseas investment in Japan. Climate change was a significant problem before COVID-19, but today it is joined by supply chain vulnerability, energy and food security.

Japan was already suffering growth problems before the Covid-19 outbreak, such an elderly population, a labour shortage, and the economic divide between urban and rural regions.

Innovation is essential to overcoming these new obstacles and achieving sustainable economic development, and it’s crucial to combine human resources, technology, and capital to accomplish this necessary innovation.

International businesses are already operating in the Japanese market, and they are not only establishing traditional production and sales bases. Through cooperative collaborations with Japanese businesses and academics, they are fostering chances for innovation to address Japan’s social goals.
