The new stage of the business between Japan and China
“Being forty and not bewildered” is a famous saying in Confucius’s “ Analects “. With the introduction of reform and openness policies in 1978, China’s economy has undergone a tremendously fast growth for the past 40 years. Recently, due to the already-larger economic scale and the drastic turmoil in the domestic and international environment, there is no denying that there is a slight sense of “wandering” of the economy. However, this sense of “wandering” is inevitable and a must-have when the structure is shifting from quantity to quality; and China, which is in a hurry to enhance domestic demand and to promote innovation, is definitely entering a new economic revolution.
Meanwhile, 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Japan-China Peace and Friendship Treaty. With regard to the Japan-China relationship, Prime Minister Abe has positioned the bilateral relationship as “from competition to cooperation,”; however, China can still absorb and take reference from Japan’s past experience and lessons, including transformation of industrial structure, environmental issues, dealing with the burst of bubble, and trade friction. In a sense, with the 40th anniversary as a turning point, without a doubt, we believe that the Japan-China relationship will enter a new stage, and we are confident that new business opportunities will emerge and increase continuously.
Bringing the vitality of Asia to Japan
Although there are many pessimistic views on Japan’s future economy, such as the declining birthrate, aging population, and difficulty to overcome deflation; from the eyes of overseas investors, Japan is a treasure trove. The surprisingly high-quality goods (products) and services, which Japanese people has been taken for granted, were extremely welcomed and appreciated by the overseas markets, which can be proved by the rapid expansion of inbound tourism industry in Japan in the past years.
As symbolized by the Nobel Prize-winning rush since 2000, there are still many undiscovered “treasures” in Japan that the world envies. Thanks to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, we foresee more and more interest in Japan, not only individuals but also corporates from the globe. We believe that by bringing the vitality of Asia and China into Japan and promoting two-way communication, the tremendous value of Japan’s “treasures” will be further revealed.
AIS CAPITAL will continue to help discover “treasures” that Japanese people haven’t noticed from their own angles. We hope to create value by connecting this to the vitality of Asia.
