TOKYO, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) will hold the "Invest Tokyo Seminar 2015 in London" on July 14 at Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel, London, for foreign companies interested in advancing into Japan. This seminar will provide the UK companies with an opportunity to learn about the allure of Tokyo as an investment destination, as well as various incentives and support for foreign companies provided by the TMG and the national government. There will be special sessions on the FinTech and healthcare industries.
The TMG is advancing efforts to attract foreign companies and develop a more business-friendly environment by attracting talent, information and investment from around the world to Tokyo using the special economic zone systems of the national government. More than 40 foreign companies have decided to set up business in Tokyo by receiving TMG support.
Foreign companies newly establishing their regional headquarters or R&D centers in the special economic zone will be eligible to receive incentives and support such as free management consulting services, a subsidy program, preferential tax treatment and introduction of office space at reduced rates.
The TMG can also provide meticulous support for foreign companies in their activities from business establishment to business expansion. This includes the Tokyo One-Stop Business Establishment Center, which provides centralized support for procedures related to company incorporation, the Business Development Center Tokyo, and the Tokyo Employment Consultation Center.
Tokyo is transforming into an even more attractive city. New high-performance office buildings with excellent earthquake resistance and emergency power systems are opening one after another. The TMG is promoting the development of a healthcare and education environment for foreign residents, and installing multi-lingual signage on the streets and transportation facilities to turn Tokyo into a city where foreign company employees and their families can live in comfort.
Many business opportunities exist in Tokyo as it evolves in preparation for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The time is right to advance into Tokyo.
