Webinar 132: How to open a representative office in Japan
05-08-19 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM CET
How can a European company efficiently set up and effectively utilise a representative office in Japan?
This Webinar presents practical, step-by-step guidelines relevant to EU-based small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are thinking about entering Japanese markets by first opening a representative office. For many companies in Europe, Japan can appear both an attractive and a distant or unfamiliar market. For this reason, many European companies hesitate to invest in Japan, or do decide to invest on the basis of imperfect or out-dated information. As we illustrate in this Webinar, opening a representative office in Japan offers European companies a relatively low-cost and low-risk opportunity to do market research and form business networks before investing too heavily. Building on the examples detailed in an accompanying Report, this Webinar offers real-life case studies of EU-based SMEs that have opened a representative office in Japan and used this office efficiently and effectively as a platform upon which to achieve a strong market position and, subsequently, business success in Japan.
The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to learn the key elements for setting up a representation office in Japan.
