IIC Partners' Japan Office, Palson Consulting, Open for Business
TOKYO_Palson Consulting Co, IIC Partners' member firm in Japan, is open for business and reporting that Japan's business community is beginning to recover from the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11.
Palson's President Koichi Sakamoto said aftershocks were still common in the city and travel was challenging, with some journeys taking four times longer than usual. However, despite some power cuts, Tokyo's communications infrastructure was returning to normal.
"Many Japanese companies have been seriously affected by the events of March 11. There was a very quiet period immediately after the earthquake and tsunami as our clients, like ourselves, halted business to ensure their families, friends and colleagues were safe.
"However we are all looking forward now, though it is clear some sectors will take much longer to recover than others. Aside from the nuclear power industry, the manufacturing sector is experiencing serious challenges due to the fact so many plants and factories have been damaged.
"All Japanese people greatly appreciate the warm support that our country has received from more than 100 countries.
"I'd like to thank everyone who has contacted IIC Partners enquiring after us, and can assure you that we are open for business and welcome your calls and e-mails," Sakamoto-san said.
