INVEST JAPAN SEMINAR 2014 - Corporate Growth Opportunities and Japan's Economic Agenda (New York, NY)
Event Date: September 23, 2014
Through Abenomics, Japan is trying to make the goal of becoming "the world's best place to do business" a reality.
With the introduction of the Growth Strategy last year, the goal to double the amount of foreign direct investment to Japan from 18 trillion yen to 35 trillion yen by 2020 was set. With regard to the corporate tax reform, the national government, in order to be internationally-comparable, announces to aim to reduce the percentage level of the effective corporate tax rate down to the twenties in several years and will start the first phase reduction from the next fiscal year.
Also, while respecting the initiatives set by the local governments, the government has already designated National Strategic Special Zones that realize unique growth in each region. Starting this month, a new initiative called "Local Abenomics" has been launched, having Abenomics enter a new stage.
Up until now, the prefectural cities have had weak ties to foreign companies; now, they are Japan's frontier.
This seminar's main focus is to introduce to you the potential of the Japanese prefectural cities, and introduce to you to new investment opportunities in renewable energy, healthcare, tourism and many other industries.
Come and discover Japan!
