Committed to Strengthening Swiss-Japan Ties
Founded in 1981 and officially approved by the Japanese Ministry of Industry and Trade the following year, we support the interests of Swiss companies doing business in Japan as well as Japanese companies interested in doing business in Switzerland.
Not only do we count among our members some of the biggest Swiss multinationals but we are also proud of the many small and medium-sized companies, the so-called hidden champions which constitute an important part of our membership.

July 28, 2014 Swiss watch exports growing favourably
Tokyo (SCCIJ) - The first half-year of 2014 was very favorable for the Swiss watch industry as a whole. Exports once again passed the 10 billion franc, with 10.5 billion. This high level corresponds to growth of 3.0 percent compared to the first half of 2013. The growth in Japan was particularly strong, partly due to more sales ahead of the jump of the sales tax rise in April. Watches were Switzerland’s main export in the first half of the year.
July 25, 2014 Switzerland tops OECD for life expectancy
Tokyo (SCCIJ) - When it comes to long life, then Japan is normally considered the country with the highest life expectancy in the world. The eldest human being is also a woman from Japan. But according to the latest OECD statistics, Switzerland tops the 34 industrialized nations with a life expectancy of 82,8 years. Admittedly, Japan is very close on Switzerland's heals: Japanese live on average only 0.1 years shorter than the Swiss. But this equals almost 37 days.
