CBIA: Unlocking Japanese FDI & Trade Opportunities – CBIA Leadership Essentials

February 22, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

How can Connecticut companies connect and best leverage Japanese direct investment and trade opportunities?

Japan is the largest foreign direct investor in the U.S., playing a major economic role through capital investments, employment, increased U.S. merchandise exports, and R&D spending.

Japanese total direct investment in the U.S. reached a record $679B in 2020—including $310B in the manufacturing sector—and is responsible for almost one million American jobs.

In addition, Japan is the U.S.’s fourth largest trading partner and one of Connecticut’s top 10 export destinations, with $405M in goods shipped in 2021.
