Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the overseas transfer of Japanese businessmen and their families to the United Kingdom (UK) by outlining the history of Japanese manufacturing and financial institutions, and the infrastructure that has developed to serving the Japanese community living there. Japanese banks returned to London to help finance trade, and from the 1960s to finance the expansion of Japanese manufacturing in the UK. Telford holds several attractions for Japanese manufacturing companies, not least incentives given by the Invest in Britain Bureau of the Department of Trade and Industry and from the Telford Development Agency (TDA). The Japanese population in Cardiff has, like other areas in the UK, been affected by the Japanese recession. Just as in Telford, there is no other infrastructure aimed at the Japanese community, while in Plymouth there no infrastructure at all and the only option for Japanese children in Plymouth are to attend local schools.

Keywords: Cardiff; financial institutions; Japanese community; London; Plymouth; Telford Development Agency (TDA); United Kingdom (UK)
