IJCC-ACCJ Joint Online Networking: Event Report

On Friday 5th February, the IJCC held the IJCC-ACCJ Joint Online Networking event. 

This annual collaboration is held to strengthen the bond between our chambers and deepen the friendships between members. Due to COVID-19, the event was held online for the first time. 

The Ambassador of Ireland to Japan Paul Kavanagh addressed the event. He welcomed members from the ACCJ, updated us on current business relations between Ireland and Japan and wished continuous friendship between the two chambers.  

Following the Ambassador’s speech, we enjoyed the entertaining remarks of the IJCC President Yoshihiro Tsuchiya and ACCJ Vice-president Eric Sedlak. A highlight was Mr Sedlak’s valiant use of the Irish language during his speech which was warmly received by the audience. 

In the networking session, members enjoyed chatting in small groups in the break-out rooms. In the raffle, two ACCJ members won Irish Jameson Whiskey and GUINNESS draught beer. 

It was a pleasure to welcome many members from the IJCC and ACCJ. Thank you very much for your participation and we look forward to welcoming you again next year.
