ABOUT THE
BUSINESS SUmmIT

Organized by the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan under the patronage of the French Ambassador to Japan, the 3rd edition of the Business Summit “Growth Opportunities in Africa and the Indo-Pacific Region: Towards New Business Partnerships” will help attendees spotlight growth opportunities, as well as strengthen and increase strategic and global partnerships.

Through plenary sessions and workshops, government officials, business and opinion leaders as well as researchers will give their insights on strategic trends in Africa and the Indo-Pacific region by presenting key drivers, risks, dynamics at play and opportunities for strategic partnerships.

We aim for this summit to promote the strength and know-how of French and Japanese companies operating in these geographies -or willing to operate-, reinforce cooperation and develop business and strategic contacts.

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 strengthen the partnership between France and Japan, in Japan and around the world. The third edition of the Business Summit, that will focus this year on strategic regions for both French and Japanese businesses -Indo-Pacific and Africa- will be a new opportunity to further develop relations between our two countries, always keeping in mind sustainability issues.
