ARMEL CAHIERRE

President, CCI France Japon

2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan. Over the past century, Japan and France have established and continuously developed strong trade and investment relationships, undoubtedly contributing greatly to the economic prosperity of both countries. This anniversary year is the perfect opportunity to revisit the successes of the past while committing to a future of vibrant and dynamic France-Japan economic ties. The Centenary of the French Chamber will be celebrated throughout the year thanks to a series of exceptional events of which the highlight will be a full-day Business Sum- mit. The Summit will take place in Tokyo on November 19, 2018, and will feature prestigious guest speakers who will share their visions of the future of economic and business relations between France and Japan.

LAURENT PIC

French Ambassador to Japan

Since its foundation in 1918, the French Chamber has played a major role in the expansion of business relations between French and Japanese companies, and thus deeply contributed to the strengthening of the partnership between France and Japan. This year, we both celebrate the 160th anniversary of Franco-Japanese diplomatic ties and the 100th anniversary of the French Chamber, which was the first foreign chamber created in Japan. I am sure this Business Summit will help to further develop relations between our two countries and pave the way for the next 100 years to come!
