If you are considering new export markets to grow your business this year, take a look at Japan.
Japan’s latest GDP figures show that Japan’s economy grew an annualized 4.1% in the January-March quarter, compared with an expected 3.5% rise, as resurgent domestic demand and government spending helped fuel recovery from last year’s natural disasters and supply chain disruptions that had suppressed growth.
Japan is the 3rd largest economy in the world. With GDP twice the size of the UK and GDP per person 10 times that of China, Japan remains the high-tech powerhouse economy of Asia – with the 2nd highest spend worldwide on R&D, a hunger for IP and new trends, and an increasingly globalised outlook.
Exports from the UK are worth Â£8 billion a year and 450 British companies have operations in Japan. British companies are succeeding in Japan across a wide range of manufacturing, consumer goods, high tech and services sectors. 2012 is the time for you to take a step into this market.
