Business Outlook: Japan in an APAC perspective
Japan is the world’s third largest economy and Sweden’s third largest export market outside of Europe. Japan and Sweden share a long history of bilateral relations and trade. Swedish industry has a lot invested in Japan in terms of production, human resources, R&D and partnerships. As Japan and Sweden celebrate 150 years of diplomatic relations in 2018, we have sought to offer an updated view on Japan (from an APAC perspective) among large Swedish international companies. This in order to provide a better understanding of the Japanese market going forward and to identify untapped potential for deepened collaboration.
