Committed to Strengthening Swiss-Japan Ties

Martin Fluck, President of SCCIJ

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.

      Tokyo (SCCIJ) - About 90 percent of Swiss start-ups on the annual Top 100 list of the "Institute for start-up companies" (Institut für Jungunternehmen) are internationally oriented from the beginning and therefore called "born global". The Swiss foreign trade and investment promoter "Switzerland Global Enterprise" has its own program to support such young companies. E.g., the organization has specialists at hand which can give transnational advice in order to help them succeed.
