EICN Tokyo: China’s risk and opportunity for corporate Japan

China’s shaky property market, increasingly fragile consumer sentiment and volatile relations with its neighbours often obscures the huge opportunity for corporate Japan in Asia’s largest economy.

If China grows at a conservative two percent for the next decade, the cumulative GDP growth will be equal to India’s today. Despite regular bouts of trade friction between China and the rest of the world, corporate Japan needs to reckon with the China market to chart a path to growth.
