Highlights

The world is undergoing unprecedented change and uncertainty. Complex and interconnected problems, such as climate change, pandemics, inequality, cyberattacks, and social unrest, challenge the world. These problems demand innovative and collaborative solutions that can harness the power of technology, creativity, and human potential. As business leaders and responsible citizens, we have the unique opportunity and the responsibility to shape the future of our industries, communities, and society in this changing world. We can leverage our resources, expertise, and influence to create positive impact and value for all stakeholders. We can also inspire and empower others to join us in our vision and mission. The world is changing faster than ever before, and we need to adapt and innovate to keep up.

In particular, France and Japan ought to move forward, find ways of becoming more resilient and creative, as well as reclaim a leading position in innovation. By focusing on how both countries can successfully transition to the digital, design innovative partnerships, efficiently mobilize financial resources and generate new ideas, we will grasp an overarching picture of the future opportunities awaiting their economies and bilateral relation.

To explore these challenging questions, the 2024 edition of our Business Summit will invite inspiring speakers to share their experiences and visions for the future. This influential event of global reach will allow you to connect the business world, renown academics, and global scientific and social communities and showcase both successful solutions to current problems and new strategies for future transformation.

Since its foundation in 1918, the French Chamber of Commerce has been playing a decisive role in fostering and reinforcing partnerships between Japanese and French companies and more profoundly, in bringing France and Japan together in many ways. By allowing them to share their visions, learn from each other and try to find common solutions to the current challenges our societies are facing, the Business Summit will once again be a unique opportunity to contribute further to the longstanding connection between our two countries.
