The Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ANZCCJ) and the Japan Australia Business Cooperation Committee (JABCC) invite you to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the 1957 Australia-Japan Commerce Agreement at the luxurious The Peninsula Tokyo Ballroom on 25 July 2017.

Signed in Hakone in 1957, only 12 years after the end of WWII, the Commerce Agreement between Australia and Japan was the first breakthrough in post-war trade relations.  When our countries signed the Agreement, East Asia and Australia accounted for about 10 per cent of global GDP.  Today our region accounts for around 27 per cent of global GDP and that could be as high as 40 per cent in a decade’s time.   

The evening will be a celebration of the Australia-Japan relationship, with elements throughout the event showcasing the harmonious collaboration between our countries, our commercial history and cultures.  

Guests of honour and speakers at this event will include:

  • HE Richard Court AC, Australian Ambassador to Japan & Mrs Court
  • Mr Kiyoshi Odawara, Parliamentary Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs
  • Dr Akio Mimura, Chairman of Japan-Australia Business Cooperation Committee
  • Mr Ichiro Aisawa, Chairman, Japan-Australia Parliamentary Friendship Association

  • Mr Yorihiko Kojima, Vice-Chairman of Australia-Japan Business Cooperation Committee
  • Mr Andrew Gauci, Chair of Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan
  • Ms Melanie Brock, Chair Emeritus of Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan

The evening will be highlighted by a live performance by “WA-GOU," a unique acoustic didgeridoo and tsugaru shamisen duo of Japanese musicians Tets-J and Pierre Ono.
