Legal Profession Corporation CAST
Masato Shibata is attorney-at-law and a partner of Legal Profession Corporation CAST. He is admitted in Japan and New York. He graduated from Tokyo University and has a LL.M degree from New York University. He is a STEP member of the Hong Kong branch. His experience as a lawyer is more than 20 years and extends to wide-raging areas such as cross-border transactions, corporate, M&A, litigations and family matters. Recently, one of his interests is responding to a growing demand of worldwide individuals for on and offshore estate planning with the influx of people from many other countries and the rapidly aging population in Japan. Those who have assets in Japan, regardless of whether they live in or outside Japan, or who live without any substantial assets in Japan are strongly recommended to seek professional advice to understand their legal and tax position for estate planning. Also, the successors of a deceased who had assets and/or lived in Japan are inevitable to understand their legal and tax position in Japan.
As one of the developing countries in Asia, Myanmar has encouraged domestic and foreign investors to invest in various economic sectors through selective liberalization and incentives. Myanmar has market opportunities in nearly every sector, including infrastructure, transportation, telecommunications, tourism, hotels, agriculture, energy, healthcare, professional services, and franchising. Most of these optimistic estimates project a quadrupling of Myanmar’s GDP by 2030 during which the urban population is expected to double. Such dramatic growth is far from assured and assumes significant investment in upgrading the country’s infrastructure.
