ABOUT JAPAN

As Japan has become a key part of the intricate global business environment, the foreign businessperson working with Japanese companies may encounter a wide variety of communication gaps arising from differences in cultural values and assumptions, business customs, and language.

The foreign businessperson who understands the cultural background of the Japanese business partners will be better prepared to build strong partnerships and successful cooperation.
