The mission of this Asian hub office is to identify mutually beneficial opportunities for partnerships and inward investment opportunities into the MENAT region. Our Asian office is actively looking to attract and incubate new business opportunities whether at the large corporate, or small and medium enterprise (SME) level.
Our Tokyo-based team is ideally positioned being both English-speaking Japanese nationals who also have deep experience and an implicit understanding of conducting business in the MENAT region.
Leveraging this regional expertise, we’re identifying trade and partnership opportunities available to Asian businesses that now exist in multiple sectors including:
- Renewable energy
- Land and real estate
- Financial services
The value of Japan’s bilateral trade with the GCC countries in 2014 approached US$ 165 billion, with Japan being Saudi Arabia’s second largest trading partner. In September 2016, the Joint Group for the ‘Saudi-Japan Vision 2030’ was established heralding a new era of partnership between the two countries, with substantial potential to yield benefits that each alone would no be able to realize. This mutually beneficial economic relationship also enables the two countries to explore untapped opportunities to invest across MENAT, Africa and Asia.
