Interesting find here in the Japanese constitution. After the defeat of WWII the Allied Forces drafted the current constitution together with the defeated Japanese. Here is an excerpt of “Chapter III: Rights and Duties of the People” see if you can find the difference in wording:
The people shall not be prevented from enjoying any of the fundamental human rights. These fundamental human rights guaranteed to the people by this Constitution shall be conferred upon the people of this and future generations as eternal and inviolate rights.
With today’s article Schnell Interkulturell will start the weekly “Business Study Series”. We will feature instant classics and the latest business studies and presentations on Asian markets.
Our first feature presentation dates back to 2009 but still delivers valuable insights into the Japanese elevator market. The tripartite presentation covers an introduction to the world-wide and Japanese elevator market, a first analysis of the current market and it’s major players and finally an outlook on where the elevator industry is going.
If you want to stay up to date on the latest free Asia business studies sign up with your email and your name and we will contact you. We will NOT give your address to anybody else and we will NOT spam you!
As always if you like the presentation feel free to share it with your colleagues, your boss and your interested friends (and family?) If you need more information drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you!
The Japanese government will apparently issue thousands of work permits for Thai workers. The Japanese government plans to compensate for the supply-chain issues caused by the extreme floods in Thailand. Dozens of Japanese factories in Thailand, suppliers for their parent companies in Japan, were forced to halt their production.
In particular, automotive and electronic parts suppliers were affected by the water masses flooding wide industrial areas near the Thai capital of Bangkok. Japanese auto-maker Toyota already had to cut Japanese production as parts from Thai factories have stopped coming.
As a result the Japanese government now plans to “invite” several thousand Thai workers to Japan on a 6 month special-working-permit. There is a catch though: Japanese companies employing Thai workers under these work-permits must “promise” to send the workers back home after their visa expires.
The import of the Thai workforce to Japan should allow Japanese companies to increase production of the missing parts quickly “because workers will resume production (in Japan) under similar conditions as in their homeland”
After some time of publishing mixed language content on our German site we decided it would be better to move content in different languages to different sub-domains. We hope this makes it easier for those of you who want to read our articles in their native language.
From now on our mother-node, www.schnellinterkulturell.de, will be all German whereas the localized version will each have their on sub-domain. For now you can access the English localization through en.schnellinterkulturell.de At a later point we will add more localized version especially for Japanese, which you can find at jp.schnellinterkulturell.de in the near future.
