Japan’s top bussier: Bussiness is in a state of transition
Japan is the second-largest economy in Asia after China, but the country’s economy is still in transition.
The Bank of Japan has cut its benchmark interest rate to 0.25 percent and is working to raise the yield on 10-year government bonds from 1.50 percent to 2.00 percent.
Buses are the only form of transportation that can travel quickly between Tokyo and Osaka, where the government and businesses are located.
Bussiers can use a credit card or pay cash to buy goods and services.
In a country where public transportation is often limited to a few dozen miles, it’s a huge market for a new business.
It’s also a big opportunity for new businesses to gain exposure to the Japanese market.
This is especially true in a country that has not been a top investment destination in the past few years.
“The Japanese economy is undergoing a change, so you’re seeing a lot of change in the transportation sector,” said Kenichi Nakagawa, chief economist at Mizuho Securities.
“Buses are a huge driver of the growth, and I think that’s why the yen has been weakening in the last year.”
That shift began in earnest in the early 2000s when Japan’s economy boomed.
As the country expanded rapidly, the demand for foreign goods, especially cars, also grew.
As a result, Japan began to become a transit hub for the world.
With the advent of the global financial crisis, demand for cars dropped off, and the economy shrank.
In 2014, the country added just 6.3 million new jobs, less than half of the 5.4 million added in 2010.
But many businesses have found that their demand for imported goods has continued to grow, especially in the wake of the yen’s devaluation.
That’s made Japan a prime place to open a new bus-service company.
“In order to create a profitable business, it takes a lot to attract foreign investment,” said Tomohiro Ueda, a managing director at Mitsubishi Transportation.
“There is a lot that needs to be developed in order to open up new companies in Japan, but a lot is already done.
The new companies will also help to support the economy.”
Ueda said his company will open a bus-delivery company in 2020.
That will be the company’s first bus-based business.
“We are currently in negotiations with a number of other bus companies to help us grow,” he said.
The company will operate a fleet of up to 300 vehicles and is looking to hire staff.
The bus-carrier plans to take orders from April 2020.
The Japanese economy remains strong and the country has more than 300 million people, but it is also slowly losing its competitiveness.
As more businesses are opening up in Japan in an attempt to get into the global market, Japanese companies have also been adding foreign workers.
That has led to a slowdown in the yen.
The yen has lost nearly 70 percent against the U.S. dollar since the beginning of 2018, and many businesses are feeling the effects.
The number of new jobs in the Japanese economy fell by a record 3.2 percent in April, according to data from the National Institute of Economic Research.
That was the first time that Japan has lost jobs in three consecutive months since the early 1990s.
Many companies are feeling pressure from overseas investors, who want to invest in Japan to grow.
The country’s exports, which have been a key part of the Japanese government’s efforts to stimulate the economy, are falling at an annual rate of less than 3 percent.
Many Japanese companies are trying to make up the lost sales, as the country is losing its manufacturing base.
The government has tried to encourage companies to invest overseas to keep the economy growing.
However, the financial crisis has also hit the country hard, and it has had to cut spending and cut spending on education.
“It’s really tough for the government to stimulate domestic demand, but we have to keep on supporting the economy,” said Ueda.
“Japan is in an overall depression, so there is a huge need for investment in the future.”
