Nikkei Asia: Japan asks Google, Meta to register headquarters, toughens oversight. “The Japanese government, in its latest move to strengthen its oversight of big tech companies, has asked Google, Meta and others to register their overseas global headquarters in Japan, in addition to their local units, Nikkei has learned. Japan’s corporate law requires foreign enterprises that operate continuously within the country’s borders to register their overseas headquarters, but many tech companies have registered only their Japanese arms despite this rule.”
