Japan is truly timeless, a place where ancient traditions are fused with modern life as if it where the most natural thing in the world. It’s one of the world’s most economically and technologically advanced societies.
Japan’s economy is a highly developed and market-oriented. It is the third-largest in the world by nominal GDP. Japan is the world’s third largest automobile manufacturing country, has the largest electronics goods industry and ranked among the world’s most innovative countries in the world. The Tokyo Stock Exchange ranks third in market capitalisation and third in trading volume in the world.
Japan is also one of the leaders of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between 11 countries. With this agreement, tariffs imposed on a wide range of goods will be significantly reduced, domestic markets will open to entrants from outside, and foreign direct investment will be appropriately protected in the participating countries. Tokyo is a city with the world’s largest population and global enterprises aggregate in Japan and will also host the 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games.
Japanese philosophy focuses on continuous improvement throughout all aspects of life.
