"Promoting the interests of European businesses in Japan"
The European Business Council (EBC) is the trade policy arm of 17 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 currently works for around 3,000 local European corporate and individual members through fees paid via their respective national chamber of commerce. Some 400 companies participate directly in one or more of the EBC's 30 industry committees, whose work covers a wide variety of economic sectors.
The EBC works closely with the Delegation of the European Commission in Japan, the national European Embassies, and other business organisations to co-ordinate policy proposals and make suggestions to the Japanese Government on how to create an open environment for trade and investment in Japan.
