India is expected to be the most populous country in the world, overtaking China, by 2025. Against the backdrop of the recent liberalization of the market and the high growth rate of the economy, many Japanese companies are considering entering or expanding their business into India.
However, the legal system in India is highly complex due to the multi-layered regulations comprising federal and state laws, and related government regulations, which are frequently amended. Further, from a business perspective, one is more likely to face tough negotiations with local business counterparts in comparison to other emerging countries in Asia.
