Japan-Spain Business Circle

The Japan-Spain Business Circle [Círculo Empresarial Japón España (CEJE)] is the Association that includes Japanese companies established in Spain, as well as   Spanish companies with interests in Japan, and that arise from the Shacho Kai Barcelona transformation, due to its desire to expand its scope of activity.


The fundamental mission of the Association includes  the desire to spread  Japanese business culture.


The Japan-Spain Business Circle's main objective is to establish synergies and create a hub of initiatives, resources, and relations between Japanese businesses established in Spain with public,  social, and communications institutions, as well as with Spanish companies with interests in Japan and public and private institutions in Japan, while also promoting contact between both corporative collectives and the diffusion of their business cultures.


This objective is articulated by establishing stable means of communication that permit exchange of perceptions, points of view, and approaches to commercial relations, but also knowledge and gap-narrowing between both cultures in cultural and social development. Through these activities we can create an environment for relationships and exchanges that is an authentic, and dynamic, networking platform serving the interests of its members.
