 Tuesday. 28 February 2012 - FCCJ Luncheon Meeting

Guest Speaker:
Mr. Martin Schulz, Senior Economist, Fujitsu Research Institute

Theme:
"The World is turning Japanese: Opportunities for Japan in Asia and Europe""

Summary:
  • Japan's manufacturer are part of the Asian growth story, which might get a hit in 2012, but continues to depend on Japan's machines and parts
  • Business in Japan, not least in services, remains profitable
  • Foreign companies in Japan gain strong advantages in dealing with their Japanese partners - at home and abroad
  • Policy is supportive in 2012, but remains to be a drag thereafter
  • Japanese companies will have to target the huge EMEA market
  • Companies need "value" strategies for cross-border growth as much as "growth" strategies for emerging markets
