As the only Asian representative of the G-7, Japan is the second largest source of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States with a cumulative stock of $414 billion. Over the past several years, Japan has been the single largest source of foreign direct investment into the U.S. market, with an inflow over $31 billion in 2015. These investments, in turn, support U.S. jobs and contribute to U.S. economic output and exports.
Reasons to do business with Japan:

• Japan is the third largest economy in the world
• Japan’s consumer economy is large, broad-based and sophisticated
• Japan dependent upon the import of natural resources
o United States leading supplier of its agricultural imports, as well as agricultural capital equipment and related technologies
• Japan’s role as host of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games may present related opportunities for U.S. firms as economic activity expands in anticipation of the Games
• Japan’s strategic alliance and deep economic integration with the United States
