Great! Go, go Japan! :D

It seems you read the headline and not the story. It says Japanese investment in the world's 2nd biggest economy, which is growing at 7.5%, took a steep decline of 18%. That's not good news at all.>

Yeah, maybe your right. Japanese companies should put themselves in an unstable, increasingly expensive labor environment rather than the friendlier, cheaper alternatives.

Also, your numbers for China are off.

Good news Japan ! Better for Japan's safety and food security quality. South east Asian countries are more conscious on quality and have no transgressions against the Japanese, compared to China sabotaging and lacing toxic Japanese food products.

Melamine Milk ? Lead Toys ? Substandard steel ? Contaminated sea food ? that's made in china for you.

Lately foreign investments have been pulling out of China - slowly and surely.

Is this Abenomics at work? At least, it seems to be Abe at work as Abepolitics that is making China a less attractive and friendly environment for Japanese companies to operate.

It seems that Japanese companies want to invest where labour is cheap. Now if Abe can print enough money to devalue the yen to such a low level the Japanese Labour becomes cheaper than Vietnamese labour, he might succeed in bringing jobs back to Japan. Abenomics might work if that happens. The average person would be much poorer, but companies could invest more in and expand their Japanese operations, which seems to be the theory of Abenomics.

Never bites the hand that feeds you. Go Japan! You do the right thing, I would love to see more money and technology flow into South East Asian nations, at least they are appreciate and respect the hand that feeds them.

The Japanese investment boom in Southeast Asia is increasingly driven by the objective of establishing strategic control of the mega-markets of the next decade.
