We guide Japanese companies to success.

Introduction of Japanese Business Services

China is Japan’s second largest destination for FDI after the US, representing 11% of Japan’s total global FDI flows reaching $93.2 billion in 2012, as much as all ASEAN countries combined.

China tops the leaderboard in terms of critical growth markets and the IMF predicts approximately 10% average growth through 2017. Thus, it’s not surprising that flows of Japanese FDI have been increasing by more than 10% on average per year over the past decade. The Chinese market changes rapidly. With our expansive network across Asia, PwC can help you navigate this complex, potentially lucrative environment.

With its first office opening in 1906, PwC China has over one hundred years of history and 13,000 qualified professionals at its disposal to support international business leaders in China. PwC Japan sent 30 CPAs and tax specialists from our Japan practice to offices across China last year and we hope to have many more opportunities to help PwC China address the specific needs of Japanese business in the future.
