First Online FCCJ
Annual General Assembly

2021 APRIL

The First Online FCCJ ANNUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY

The Annual General Assembly of Finnish Chamber of Commerce in Japan has traditionally been held in April. Even though state of emergency for Metropolitan area has been lifted, the situation around the coronavirus is still causing several limitations on meetings and gatherings of people. Considering everyone’s safety, the Board of Directors has decided to refrain from holding a physical assembly this year, and due to this, matters relevant to the general assembly shall be handled in an online meeting held on ZOOM on April 7, from 17:00-19:00. Please  register for the Annual General Assembly through a website form below or by sending an email to office@fcc.or.jp. 

Participation link for the meeting will be emailed for registered participants. If you are not familiar to ZOOM, please do not hesitate to call us for assistance.

 

As the Annual General Assembly has always been a valuable occasion for members to meet other members and to hear many updates regarding not just the chamber but also Finnish business overall in Japan, we believe this is a valuable chance for many to hear some updates and maybe also find new business opportunities from the Finnish Business Community in Japan. 

In the online assembly we are also planning to introduce our Team Finland actors, ambassador Pekka Orpana, the new country director of Business Finland, Kimmo Ojuva and the director of Finnish Institute in Japan, Anna-Maria Wiljanen to hear how the Team Finland network can support the Finnish companies in Japan.
