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.
