Stakeholder & Issue Mapping
Implementing an effective government relations strategy begins with identifying both the key players and the decision-makers involved in any given issue. Our intimate understanding of the political landscape is vital to making efficient use of limited time and resources.
Influencing Japanese government stakeholders requires an evidence-based approach to policy making. We help you prepare persuasive documentation and presentations in Japanese to effectively convey your position and rationale to legislators and government ministries. We support you in face-to-face meetings with key decision-makers, and facilitate briefings and events directed at your target audience.
Effective advocacy cannot be accomplished alone. Achieving a broad social impact through government affairs requires joining forces with the right individuals, organizations and affiliations. We will help you to assemble and facilitate focused groups that exponentially expand your network, resources and ability to influence change.
Media & Policy Monitoring
Timely awareness of political developments that could impact your industry is essential—legislation likely to pass the Diet demands attention and action before it’s too late. We keep you informed and abreast of developments in public policy reform as they happen.
Obtaining appointments with government officials is not enough. Effectively conveying your message to political stakeholders is a delicate process that, at a minimum, calls for an adroit approach, careful sequencing and constant fine-tuning. We provide the necessary introductions and ongoing support to assist you in developing these key relationships.
Bidding for procurement contracts in Japan is a competitive process. We help you navigate the bureaucracy to meet the necessary qualifications and adhere to regulatory frameworks as they develop. We can arrange opportunities to present in committee meetings within government advisory councils and support you in building awareness and engagement at the highest levels of government.
