Japan – rail
Ever since the launch of the revolutionary Shinkansen bullet train in time for the 1964 Japan has been a world leader within train technology. The Shinkansen has long been the gold standard within train travel and has whisked people across Japan in supreme comfort without a single fatality since its inauguration, and Japanese commuter trains and subways make urban megalopolises like Tokyo and Osaka tick on a daily basis.
While Japanese rolling stock manufacturers and related technology providers have long perfected their technology for the domestic market, many companies are now increasingly looking to export markets for further growth. In order to effectively penetrate foreign markets, the major Japanese companies are now actively pursuing collaborations with foreign technology providers and this presents opportunities for Swedish companies to partner with some of the best in the business.
Hitachi have set up their global headquarters for rail technology in the UK and Kawasaki have invested heavily in the US. Japanese companies have also been actively involved in the initial planning stages for the Swedish high speed rail projects.
Business Sweden would now like to share our insights from the Japanese market and explain further about the business opportunities that Japan can offer Swedish companies.
Petter Sund is a project manager at Business Sweden’s office in Tokyo with more than 7 years’ experience of working for Swedish companies in Japan. He has experience from several rail related projects, including the Swedish Railroad Delegation to Japan 2015, in conjunction with the visit of Anna Johansson, the Minister of Infrastructure, to Japan.
