Our Business

Southeast Asia Business

Since the so-called China risk has been disputed in summer 2012, Southeast Asian countries have gained attention as “China Plus One”. These countries are promising as both production bases and consumption markets, given potential growth ability, pro-Japan and assiduous nationalities, and stable social situations.

Against such backdrop, JCD has commenced investment and business partnership support services to local Southeast Asian companies.  Moreover, via alliances with powerful local conglomerates, we are able to realize successful entry of our clients into the Southeast Asian market.
