Event Report - Tales from the Regions Osaka

On Wednesday 30th June, the IJCC held a "Tales from the Regions" event focused on Osaka.

Moderated by IJCC director Pat Ryan, we had remarks from the Ambassador of Ireland to Japan, Paul Kavanagh. After the remarks, Andy O’ Doherty, IJCC director and the general manager Japan of an IJCC corporate member H+K International gave us an informative presentation about Osaka’s industries, companies and the region's Irish connections. Tom O’Neill, owner of The Blarney Stone Irish Pubs in Osaka also joined the presentation and shared an introduction about Irish pub business in Osaka, his experiences and the impact of COVID-19 on the pub business.

It was a great pleasure to welcome the many members and friends who joined. Thank you very much for your participation and we look forward to welcoming you all at our next event!
