European Business Council

ICCJ Members have the opportunity to become active in the European Business Council (EBC).

The EBC is the trade policy arm of 18 European National Chamber of Commerce and Business Associations in Japan and has been working to improve the trade and investment environment for European companies in Japan since 1972. The EBC was registered with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in 2008 as the European (EU) Chamber of Commerce in Japan.

The EBC has 25 Committees devoted to improving the business environment for European companies in a variety of different sectors. Each EBC Committee is unique, reflecting the varied make-up of the EBC membership and the issues they deal with on a day-to-day basis. Some committees have memberships constituting a significant share of the Japanese market and are officially recognized by the Japanese Government as a primary industry contact while others are devoted to increasing market access opportunities for their members. Other committees address cross-sector issues such as human resources and taxation, which affect all firms in Japan, regardless of their line of business.

The following list covers the committees that have traditionally been of highest interest to the Italian companies in Japan.



Please note: To become active within the EBC and its committees, a separate membership with the EBC is necessary. Italian companies who are members of ICCJ are eligible for discounted membership as "EUROPEAN NATIONAL CHAMBER COMPANY".

For further information on membership and the EBC itself, please contact:
