Member Benefits

For Japanese companies based in the EU, or providing products or services to the EU, it is vital to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in European policies and to act on them at an early stage. 

The JBCE takes advantage of its local presence to deliver a wide range of the latest information on the European institutions' key issues in the areas of the European Green Deal, digitalisation, sustainability, standards certification and trade policies.

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.

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 to leverage their position on various EU policies with one voice.

"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 with each other. Such networking opportunities offer Members a more complete understanding of EU policy and its impact on their business."

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.
