An increasing number of Japanese companies are expanding their businesses in the Asian region, particularly in South-East Asia, South Asia and Oceania, where the population is growing rapidly. However, unlike Japan, Southeast Asia, South Asia and Oceania are divided into several jurisdictions with different legal systems, such as common law and civil law, and it is therefore not easy to comprehensively organise and understand the laws of each country.
In addition, laws and regulations in Asian countries are written not only in English, but also in other languages including Chinese, Thai, Malay, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Cambodian, Lao, Myanmar, etc., making it extremely difficult for global companies to keep up-to-date with the latest laws and regulations.
In addition, there are various legal fields, and it is difficult to comprehensively update each legal field such as company law, personal information protection law, labor law, bribery-related law, competition law, and consumer protection-related regulations. I will master it. Furthermore, among the many revisions to laws and regulations, picking up revisions to legal information that are important for Japanese companies and reflecting them in practice is a difficult task even for experienced experts. The legal areas also vary widely, including company law, personal data protection law, labour law, bribery-related law, competition law and consumer protection regulations, making it equally difficult to comprehensively update each area of law. Furthermore, identifying, selecting and reflecting in practice the legal information that is important to Japanese companies from amongst the numerous legal amendments is a challenging task, even for experienced professionals.
At present, there is no platform that provides the comprehensive and systematic information on Asian laws and regulations that Japanese companies need.
