A cooperation agreement, which includes corporate membership, was signed between the Malta Chamber and Malta -Japan Chamber of Commerce to cooperate together on doing business with Japan by endorsing terms of cooperation towards the development and diversification of commercial exchanges between respective countries.
The agreement follows the recent Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and Japan which can benefit immensely the Maltese business community.
Perit David Xuereb, President of the Malta Chamber and Mr Anthony Micallef, President of the Malta Japan Chamber of Commerce, presided over the signing of the Cooperation Agreement.
“We are excited to have the Malta-Japan Chamber of Commerce as corporate members and to embark with them on this journey towards promoting commercial exchanges for our members with such an important country. We are delighted to leverage on each other’s qualities in tandem with our respective Embassies in Malta and Japan and Trade Malta. This places us at an ideal position as the go-to-entity to do business with Japan. I therefore encourage Maltese business to help us steer the best path which best suits their needs to engage in projects of intrinsic value for them.” – Perit David Xuereb.
The terms of agreement place both Chamber resources at the disposition of each other to facilitate actions leading to economic cooperation with Japan based on expertise, the identification of sectorial interests for bilateral ties and the maximisation of networking resources with business networks like Enterprise Europe Network, to engage on joint-projects which are of mutual interest for respective members.
