How has Japan become so successful in the Hi-Tech Industry?

Extracts from this document...


How has Japan become so successful in the Hi-Tech Industry? Japan in the 19th century was living in a medieval era that was centuries behind our fairly modern lifestyle. This came as a great shock to their country as they had been isolated from other cultures for such a long time.

There are many reasons for why Japan has turned into a successful country particularly in the hi- tech industry, but there is one main characteristic that has helped most making the nation successful. That is that the whole industry of technology is joined together like a web, the smaller companies provide products for slightly larger companies, and the slightly larger companies provide products for the bigger companies.

In conclusion, I feel Japan has become so successful in the Hi-Tech industry because of the strong, web like, link between the huge leading companies and the small companies. This means the different companies rely on each other to stay in business and become successful. Which, in turn, means every company works hard for each other, which produces a hard working successful industry. ...read more.
