What is the Japan-Canada Chambers Council?

Launched in 2014, the Japan-Canada Chambers Council is a platform to build relationships, share knowledge and advocate policies to support bilateral trade and investment. It does this through joint events, delegations, research, public statements and meetings with policymakers. Housed in the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Japan Chamber of Commerce & Industry, the Council includes senior executives from leading member companies in both groups. Leadership is provided by two national chairs: Mr. Shoei Utsuda, Global Chairman of Mitsui & Co., Inc (Japan) and the Hon. Perrin Beatty, President & CEO, Canadian Chamber of Commerce (Canada).
