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!
