Japanese companies looking to set up operations in the U.S. may have special issues related to the aspect of conducting international business. The Nebraska Department of Economic Development has assembled the International Transition Team, a group of private-sector representatives, to help make companies’ entry into the U.S. and Nebraska as smooth and trouble-free as possible. Having their input during the initial planning stages can be a valuable resource that leads to success in this important market.

Nebraska is continually ranked one of the top states in the U.S. for new corporate headquarters, as well as for manufacturing. The state is also in the center of the USMCA trade corridor, allowing easy distribution to Canada and Mexico, as well as 2-day trucking to the entire U.S.
