The number of Japanese companies operating in India has gone up to 1,441 till October this year, on account of improving business environment in the country, said Ambassador of Japan to India Kenji Hiramatsu.

“We have completed the annual survey of Japanese business establishments in India…the number of Japanese companies in India has reached 1,441 as of October 2018, which is an increase of 72 companies or 5 per cent as compared to the previous year,” Hiramatsu said.

He added that manufacturing sector accounts for half of the total Japanese companies.

The Ambassador said he would like the Indian leadership to resolve issues related to tax, customs, financial and capital regulations and infrastructure as it would help in achieving “our mutual goal of doubling the number of Japanese companies in India and foreign direct investment to India in five years”.

India has received USD 28.16 billion during April 2000 and June 2018.

The bilateral trade between the countries has increased to USD 15.7 billion in 2017-18 from USD 13.6 billion in 2016-17. Trade gap is in favour of Japan.
