Past Event Round Ups
The Foreign Chambers in Japan (FCIJ) is an informal network comprised of foreign chambers of commerce and business groups in Japan, organised mainly for the purpose of information exchange and enhancement of the activities of the component organisations.
On 23rd January 2017, the executive directors and representatives of fifteen chambers of commerce in Japan met at the offices of the American Chamber of Commerce (ACCJ) to share best practices, give advice, suggest event ideas and discuss potential collaboration.
All chambers emphasised their shared goal of involving younger people in their organisations and agreed to hold a joint networking event for young professionals in the spring.
The FCIJ Business Confidence Survey, conducted twice a year, has become a widely accepted bi-annual barometer for the sentiments of foreign business leaders in Japan, their views on the Japanese economy, and their own business performance.
Since the survey’s inception in the Spring of 2002, the results have been a valuable tool not only for chambers and related embassies to assess the business climate, but also for the business and research community at large.
