Getting To Know Japan

japanese-industry

We thought we would start off by providing a bit of history on the products that Japan as a country produces, and a little bit about Japan in its entirety. Japan is the world’s number one manufacturer of automobiles in the entire world.  The country is also known to have diplomatic relations with almost all independent nations, and was ranked 27 out of 189 countries in regards to the ease associated with doing business.  Another fun fact about business relations on Japan is that 98% of all adoptions that take place in this country involve adult males?  Why? The Japanese strongly believe keeping their business solely in their families hands and males are the ones to take over and run things.
