Dear IJCC Members,

The Ireland Japan Chamber of Commerce joins our fellow Chambers of Commerce in holding the first of a series of Paralympic related events - "Tokyo Paralympics 2020 One Year to Go - Meet with Andrew Parsons, President of the International Paralympics Committee (IPC)".

August 24 (Monday), 20:00 will mark exactly one year to go until the start of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics in 2021.
