Web-based English Language Investment Information by Japanese Companies
Abstract: "Investor Relations" has become one of the most
fashionable phrases among Japanese companies in recent years, particularly
as a result of the rising impact of foreign investors in Japan. An
English-language website may be one of the most effective measures for
providing corporate information to a non-Japanese audience, but the
attitude of Japanese companies on this point is mixed. Based on a
questionnaire survey and a trend analysis, this study identifies a number
of factors underlying Japanese attitudes. It also constructs a regression
model, whereby the provision of English-language information has a positive
effect on foreign investment is observed.
