Global Chamber® is growing in 525 metropolitan areas around the world, and this summer we took extra steps to grow in key Asian countries, including Japan, South Korea, India and China. In Japan, we identified 12 more chapters besides Tokyo, from Fukuoka in the south (Kyushu) to Sapporo in the north (Hokkaido). We’re meeting with leaders in all the cities to ramp up the activities. We also held a “Doing Business in Japan” globinar that included market overviews and more opportunity analyses, and we held more events, including a virtual dining session with a focus on Japanese sake. A summary in English and Japanese is shown below for one of the chapters in Japanese. A similar approach is being used in South Korea, with five chapters already forming — Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Daejeon and Gwanju — led by Dr. Wonsok Yun. We had held a “Doing Business in South Korea” session earlier in the year with Dr. Yun.
