About Us

Our Purpose

The Chamber’s original mandate was designed primarily to facilitate trade between the U.S. and Japan. However, as globalization of the world economy continues, our mission has expanded to include supporting the business relationships that flourish between the Japanese and American communities in New York, and to close the cultural gap that hinders complete economic cooperation. Also, it is imperative that our economic leaders embrace social responsibilities and contribute to the community. The Chamber actively encourages its members to develop friendships with leaders in their local community, as well as government officials, by hosting numerous luncheons, symposiums and other activities. Functioning as a not-for-profit organization, The Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York, Inc. will continue to be the mediator between our two nations and work to achieve the goal of the Chamber’s founding fathers: a bilateral relationship based on friendship and cooperation.

A Brief History

On November 14, 1932, fourteen prominent Japanese businessmen established the Japanese Chamber of Commerce of New York, Inc. in order to foster and promote friendship and economic relations between the United States and Japan. Early 20th Century activities included hosting Japanese business and political delegations, including the first visit to the U.S. of an Emperor and Empress in 1975.
