Dhir & Dhir Associates announces its new representative office in Toyohashi, Japan

Dhir & Dhir Associates announces its new representative office in Toyohashi Japan, close to the hub of manufacturing companies including automobiles. This is the first international office of the firm.

 Why Japan?

With the expansion of Infrastructure and Corporate & Commercial verticals, the firm could not ignore  the Infrastructure & Industrial initiatives of Japan in India. The proximity to the companies wanting to do business in India is absolutely essential.  A Japan office will draw higher degree of comfort to the Japanese clients, while providing easy reach  in their own time zone, in their own language and in an environment that is closer to their own culture.

According to FICCI estimates, 1000 Japanese companies have already invested $14.75 billion in India. Other significant areas of Japanese assistance are the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) Project, the Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor (CBIC) and the Dedicated Fright Corridor Corporation (DFCC). DMIC is a Japanese-Indian collaborative project for comprehensive infrastructure development meant to create India's largest industrial belt zone and promote exports, FDI etc.

The plan to open a Japan office was a well thought out strategy at a time when Japan is looking at India as the biggest partner for its investments. The recent visit of the Emperor and the Empress in December 2013, to be  followed by Prime Minister of Japan, Mr Abe's visit in January 2014 reflects the significance of Indo-Japan partnership.

The Japan office would be represented by Ms Taiko Fujita Uppal, who will not only be spear heading the operations but also act as a communication channel for Japanese companies and firms wanting to have business relations/activities in India.
