A Message from the Chairman

"To open the door for the bright future and
inspire the people, we are
the Kawasaki Chamber of Commerce & Industry"

Osamitsu Yamada
Chairman, Kawasaki Chamber of
Commerce and Industry

Osamitsu Yamada

I was appointed the twelfth Chairman of the Kawasaki Chamber of Commerce and Industry in November 2010 as the Chamber celebrated the 70th anniversary of its formation in October 1940 by inaugural Chairman Shimizu.
As Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Kawasaki, a city of 1.43 million people, I have dedicated myself from both a macro and micro perspective to achieving "the economic revitalization of the Kawasaki region", "a vigorous Kawasaki", and "the growth of small and medium-sized, and venture businesses". By putting my past experience to work, I intend to pursue this role in good faith, bringing in new ideas as well as ideas that draw on knowledge from the past.

An international industrial city blessed by land, sea and air, Kawasaki is a city full of promise located on prime industrial land close to air and maritime links.
As well as being a center of industry and home to small and medium-sized, and venture companies, mid-scale companies, and large companies as well as research institutes that deal with scientific and other advanced technology, Kawasaki is also giving birth to new content industries including movies, music, and sport.
Located between Tokyo and Yokohama, Kawasaki is also a major market and center of consumption.

Kawasaki offers a host of business opportunities right now. We see the role of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as being to back up these opportunities. To facilitate this, we have established the Kawasaki Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) College which is targeted at business proprietors and their staff, covering a wide range of subjects which we hope will prove beneficial both now and in the future.

Based on our motto of becoming "a chamber with a dream for the future, a chamber full of promise", we aim to provide services to our members that are more intimate and precisely tailored.
