Who we are

Member benefits

JBCE advocates for Japanese business in the EU:

JBCE intervenes on behalf of our Members at EU level, campaigning on issues that impact their business performance most. JBCE’s position is based on the expertise and experience of our member companies. As a result, our work accounts for the unique situation of Japanese companies operating in Europe. In contrast to other Trade Associations, JBCE supports Japanese businesses horizontally with a cross-sectorial approach rather than any one vertical industry.

JBCE opens new spheres of influence for its Members:

Since its creation in 1999, JBCE has grown to be a recognized partner of the EU and Japanese institutions. Our established network with these actors provides our Members with a direct connection to decision makers and an opportunity leverage their position on various EU policies with one voice.

JBCE connects Japanese companies operating in Europe:

JBCE Members access an extensive network of fellow Members confronting similar challenges and opportunities as Japanese companies operating in the European context, strictly complying with all applicable EU and national competition rules. Through our committees and external events, JBCE is a platform for Members to interact. Such interaction affords Members a more complete understanding of EU policy and its impact on their business.

JBCE provides high-quality intelligence and monitoring services:

JBCE prepares and issues exclusive reports for Members active in various sectors on current policy developments and associated impacts. This allows Members to benefit from considerable foresight and prepare for developments accordingly.
