Why I'm studying Japanese

Despite a slow period in the late 90s and early 2000s, Japan remains a leading investor in semiconductor design and manufacturing. In fact, SEMI reports, the country accounted for about a quarter of global equipment sales from 2003 to 2006.

While emerging markets generate lots of excitement, mature economies like Japan (and the US) have lots of structural advantages. They may go through rough years or even rough decades, but their very size ensures their diversity and resilience.
