    company name must remain operating, either in whole or in part, since inception. Note however that such claims are often open to question and should be researched further before citing them.

    Bank of Korea in 2008 that looked at 41 countries, there were 5,586 companies older than 200 years. Of these, 3,146 (56%) are in Japan , 837 (15%) in Germany , 222 (4%) in the
