UOB opens 10th FDI Advisory Centre in Japan

Since its launch, the advisory unit supported about 4,000 companies investing in the region.

UOB opens the 10th FDI Advisory Centre in Tokyo, with a dedicated Japan desk in Singapore to assist Japanese firms expanding in Southeast Asia.

UOB's establishment of an FDI Advisory Centre in Japan comes at a crucial time, it said in a release. 

With a track record of assisting over 300 Japanese companies in expanding into Southeast Asia since 2011, the bank recognises the growing trend driven by several factors. 

These include supply chain realignments, trade tensions, a burgeoning consumer demographic in a high-growth region, and the emergence of the digital economy.

The Tokyo FDI Advisory Centre will serve as a conduit, connecting ASEAN investment promotion agencies, professional service providers, and stakeholders in the value chain. Its aim is to assist Japanese companies in navigating the intricacies of the region's business landscape.
