June 2021 marks one year since the Japan Ministry of Finance’s amended Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act (FEFTA) went into effect, modifying Japan’s treatment of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Japanese companies. What have we learned in the 12 months since, and what have the practical implications been on FDI in Japanese tech companies? What trends, if any, have emerged?

Please join Morgan Lewis Tokyo lawyers Moto Araki, Narumi Ito, Masaki Ichimura, and Nao Sato to discuss the current investment and regulatory climate, FDI rules, and exemptions for foreign investors in Japanese tech.
