On October 16, 2018, the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) celebrated its 70th anniversary at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo.
The ACCJ was established 70 years ago when founding ACCJ President Dennis McEvoy met General Douglas MacArthur to discuss the great potential of the ACCJ as a force for good. Since then, the ACCJ has become a primary voice in the US–Japan economic partnership and the premier foreign business organization in Japan.
COSMO has been a longstanding member and supporter of the ACCJ; we have actively supported the communications efforts of many American companies that have entered Japan. Kumi Sato, President and CEO of Cosmo Public Relations, who serves as Chairman Emeritus of the ACCJ, had the opportunity to be the MC at the 70th anniversary event.
The ACCJ has much to celebrate over the great accomplishments to-date, and we look forward to the next 70 years!
