The Indo-Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry has completed 30 years of its dedicated services (estd. in 1989) in strengthening relations between Japan and India in educational, cultural and economic fields.
I am extremely happy to be the President of IJCCI (since 23.08.2019 for a three-year term) and I thank my colleagues on the IJCCI Board and the members of IJCCI who have reposed great confidence in me.
A bilateral Chamber like ours must strike new paths and new directions to make itself more effective and more useful to members. Personally I feel, the Chamber should become a Knowledge Bank for furthering the relations between India and Japan in a bigger and bolder way.
Together we must strive to increase the membership and should make earnest efforts to strike roots in different parts of India. In fact our aim will be to facilitate any Indian businessman who looks up to Japan to turn to IJCCI for guidance and help.
The diplomatic relations between India and Japan today is at its historic high. However, there is an information gap in both the countries about the potentials and opportunities. IJCCI will make earnest efforts to fill this lacuna by organising a number of linguistic, cultural and economic programmes from to time.
