A message from SCCJ Chairman on EBC & SCCJ

A message from SCCJ Chairman on EBC & SCCJ

Submitted by administrator on Fri, 11/01/2019 - 11:57

Dear Member of SCCJ,

As you may be aware, SCCJ has during a number of years been considering withdrawing from EBC (European Business Council in Japan) with the main reason being that we have considered the EBC fees being too high – actually being one of the single-biggest expense items for the Chamber with around 7% of the yearly budget. We have not managed to come to a compromise on the fee levels and have therefore decided to withdraw. The decision was made with unanimous approval by all Directors of SCCJ.
