Inbound Foreign Direct Investment in Mature Economies: Lessons from Japan

en anglais sans traduction
Date vendredi 18 mai 2018 / 12:30 - 14:00
Lieu Room 601
Conférencier Rémy MAGNIER-WATANABE (University of Tsukuba)

Although Japan has attracted far less foreign investment than other mature economies, it can offer insights into FDI decision-making for international firms entering countries with a shrinking domestic market and increased international competition. Using a Delphi methodology with contributions from foreign direct investors and experts, I propose a model of inbound FDI in Japan and identify four types of investors based on the nature of investments and market maturity, namely empire builders, rescuers, niche players, and cherry-pickers.
Several foreign companies can be seen to employ simultaneous FDI strategies, alternating rescuer, cherry-picker and niche-player approaches depending on market conditions and the firms available for takeover. Furthermore, some niche players become empire-builders over time when faced with increased competi- tion and lower growth rates in their sector. This framework, offering both descrip- tive and prescriptive components, can help firms take advantage of investment opportunities in Japan while considering its possible applicability to other mature economies.
