Majority of Japanese firms are looking at expanding globally. In fact, according to a recent survey by Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO):
- Almost 75% of Japanese firms has expressed interest in expanding their business operations overseas, the highest percentage since before 2011 and a nearly 10 percentage point increase over 2015 results.
- Furthermore, Gartner revealed that 75% of businesses in Japan are already preparing for digitalization, including around 20% which are pursuing digital business at an organizational level to identify new avenues for growth and expansion.
Like other local businesses, the challenge for Japanese firms, however, is how to successfully penetrate the global market considering Japan’s labor shortage (caused by an aging workforce and education gaps) and lack of leaders with a global mindset.
