Introduction of Japanese Business Services

Japanese FDI made up 4.6% of Germany’s inbound FDI in 2011 and almost doubled to $1.8 billion in 2012.

With Germany’s economic influence increasing, relations between the world’s third and fourth largest economies have never been so important. Though both countries face similar challenges related to an ageing economy, they also share similar strengths in automobile and pharmaceutical industries. PwC’s compelling mix of technical knowledge and industry-specific expertise offers Japanese clients the strategic support necessary to bolster their business in Germany.

As Germany’s largest professional service firm, PwC employs more than 9,000 professional staff in Deutschland, among which are a number of Japanese speakers. They represent the interests of more than 400 Japanese firms in Germany with a range of services, from international taxation to mergers and acquisitions.
