South Africa and Japan — a flourishing ‘Good Hope’ partnership
Today almost four hundred and fifty Japanese companies are doing business across Africa. Many companies (including Japanese automotive leaders Toyota and Nissan) are managing their operations from the continent’s most industrialized and diversified economy – South Africa.
“There are one hundred and sixty Japanese companies operating in South Africa and most cover the African continent from here,” says H.E. Norio Maruyama, Japan’s Ambassador to South Africa.
