  • Fukuoka: A National Strategic Special Zone

    National Strategic Special Zones are specially-designated zones in which exclusive regulatory and system reforms are implemented to verify their effects, thereby aiming to revitalize the Japanese economy.

    Since its designation as the National Strategic Special Zone for Global Startup & Job Creation in 2014, Fukuoka City has been working to support business startup and job creation by combining deregulation measures and Fukuoka’s original polices such as “Startup-Visa” and “Tax Reduction for Startups.”
