Japan’s Chamber of Commerce Opens New Office in Medellin

Japan’s Ambassador to Colombia Keiichiro Morishita this month unveiled new offices in Medellin of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI).

The decision to open new offices here came following an initiative by local investment promotion agency ACI (Agencia de Cooperación e Inversión de Medellín).

According to ACI, the new CCI office aims to boost foreign investment in Medellin, fortify commercial exchanges and promote educational and cultural initiatives.

CCI already has offices in Bogota — for more than 30 years — but now aims to expand its efforts in Medellin.

CCI affiliates are mainly Japanese companies operating in Colombia as well as Colombian empresarios with commercial aims in Japan, added CCI executive director Oscar Romero.

Initially, CCI will locate its offices in Medellin’s “Ruta N” high-tech landing space, but later will move to its own headquarters, according to ACI.
