Evaluating the market in Japan

We can help you get a better understanding of market activity, relationships and support to grow your business.

Business environment in Japan

Japan is one of the world’s largest economies and one of Canada’s most important economic and commercial partners. Canadian investment in Japan is significant and diverse, with over 100 companies having a permanent presence in the market. This is due to Japan’s exceptional business environment which is characterized by its excellent infrastructure, low levels of corruption and strong rule of law. Additionally, Japan’s high standards for education have produced a highly technical and skilled workforce. Japan’s participation in the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) trade agreement, as well as the Canada-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (CJEPA) is a positive for Canadian companies and investors looking to grow their footprint in the country.
