I would like to thank all the European companies that have contacted the EBC in the last few days about the negative consequences of the Japanese border restrictions on their business and that of their Japanese customers/partners. Rest assured that we are continuing our meetings and actions for a speedy resolution.
Vaccination against Covid-19, which will certainly contribute to improve this situation, is increasing in Japan. The EBC would like to highlight the various vaccination initiatives taken by the European national Chambers of Commerce in Japan. Soon they will have vaccinated 4,305 people (foreigners and Japanese) as their contribution to the fight against the coronavirus. Not to forget, this is in addition to what European companies have already organised for their personnel. European companies and national chambers of commerce are proud to contribute to the collective effort and hope to enjoy very soon the benefits of the Europe-Japan Free Trade Agreement under the best conditions.
Finally, let me remind you of theJapan Business Conference 2021, organised by METI and JETRO, dedicated to innovation in green investment and realization of carbon neutrality by 2050, areas in which cooperation between Europe and Japan has great potential.
We hope you stay positive and healthy during this difficult time.
EBC Chief Operating Officer
The European national Chambers vaccinate 4,305 people as their contribution to the fight against Covid-19
Vaccination has been a hot topic all over the world. After a slow start, with massive efforts and several initiatives, Japan is getting closer to the 50% fully vaccinated mark.
The EBC would like to highlight the various vaccination initiatives taken by the European national Chambers of Commerce and European companies. In total, the European Chambers, via 7 national chambers, will have vaccinated 4,305 people: 2,205 people in July and August, and an additional 2,100 are scheduled to get their first jab before mid-September. European companies, on the other hand, have already organised vaccinations for their employees and family.
The EBC would like to stress that many nationalities, both staff of chamber member companies and their families, have had the chance to get vaccinated.
Just as the Japanese Government believes that vaccination is important, so do the European national. We stand ready to do our part, and we hope that all of us, by this action, can get closer to a world without COVID.
