The Malta-Japan Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organisation with the aim of strengthening bilateral commercial exchanges between Malta and Japan with the support of the Government and JETRO.
Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Businesses Chris Cardona addressed the launch of the Malta-Japan Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber aims to act as the natural focal point for entrepreneurs interested in business exchanges between the two countries and to keep developing a strong network between them.
Going forward, the trade exchange between Malta and Japan could be another pillar for Malta and would add to its current economic growth. Minister Cardona conveyed his hope that Maltese businesses will take advantage of the blossoming bilateral relationship between Malta and Japan by reaching out to the Japanese market.
“For those who want to invest here we hold out the hand of friendship”, the Minister said, emphasising that in the past few years Malta has attracted increasing notoriety as a centre for international business.
In his closing remarks, Minister Cardona noted that Malta’s geostrategic position and high level of employment together with its political and economic stability will allow business relations between Malta and Japan to flourish.
President of the Chamber of Commerce Anthony Micallef, Ambassador of the Republic of Malta to Japan André Spiteri, and Director, Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO – Milan Office) Hiroto Kobayashi were amongst those who delivered speeches during the launch.
