Despite being hit by the biggest natural tragedy in recent modern history with the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Japanese are set to move ahead goals that have only been reinforced by the chain of disasters.

Japan has a regulatory structure that makes investments possible and it stands as the largest creditor nation worldwide with decades of present account surpluses leading to huge build-up of foreign reserves and other external properties. Not only does Japan enjoy well-developed, high-tech manufacturing and services sectors, but it also has to its advantage, a strong threshold in key arenas in the field of electronics and heavy engineering.

Japanese petrochemicals pioneers are shifting their focus to production activities in emerging markets. They stand to benefit from rising demand from emerging markets, particularly China and India as it can make up for its own weak demand. Despite the possibility of being dependent on exports as a major force of growth, and this means that its prosperity is dependent on demand from the US and, increasingly, China, Japan has plenty of capacity to cater to its own requirements.
