PROGRAM

Now more than ever, it is critical to take action to reinvent our future! While the Covid crisis has undoubtedly shaken countries, economies and societies around the world, it also offers a unique opportunity to reinvent and redefine the future for the current generations as well as generations to come.

Visions are needed for businesses and citizens to start taking action and create new products, services, and ways of living.

future?

The French Chamber of Commerce has been contributing since its foundation in
1918 to strengthen the collaboration between French and Japanese companies, and
as such the strong ties that hold France and Japan together. By fostering debate and
sharing ideas, the Business Summit will once again be a unique opportunity for
leaders from our two countries and beyond to contribute to shape a vision for a
common future. This year, keeping in mind French and Japanese roadmaps for carbon
neutrality, speakers will help the audience draw possible futures for 2050 and
undoubtedly contribute to developing new relations between France and Japan.
