Japan is the trendsetter in Asia – if you have made it there, you can make it anywhere! It is the world’s 3rd largest economy and with a population of over 126 million, the country remains one of the most important and biggest export markets for Switzerland.
South Korea is a very dynamic market that offers Swiss companies many opportunities, particularly in the MEM, medtech, biotech and cosmetics sectors.
I lived and worked in the Asia-Pacific region for more than nine years, several of which I spent in Japan, and spent four lucky years assisting Swiss companies at our local Swiss Business Hub in Tokyo. At S-GE, I have been acting as the first point of contact for Swiss and Liechtenstein companies looking to expand into Japan and South Korea for over two years now, advising and supporting them together with our local teams in Tokyo and Seoul.
