Accenture has been selected to help Tokyo recruit at least 10 foreign companies to locate their regional headquarters or centers for research and development in the capital by March 2014.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government aims to have 500 foreign businesses in its special zone for Asian headquarters by 2016, Accenture said Monday.
TMG selected the company to create list of potential investors as well as promote the benefits of doing business in the region.
Hiroshi Goto, head of Accenture’s health and public service business in Japan, said the company will also advise local officials on how to improve government, business and living environments.
Foreign companies that operate in the special zone are entitled to financial assistance, preferential tax treatment, deregulation and subsidies.
Accenture will provide management consulting services to companies and guide them in making decisions, the company said.
