About Us

Since its establishment in 1978, Keizai Koho Center (Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs or KKC) has served as a platform for the Japanese business community to interact with its key stakeholders inside and outside of the country.
KKC conducts a variety of programs and projects whereby 700 companies and 40 industry associations actively seek to develop constructive ties with Japanese and foreign lawmakers, government officials, scholars, journalists, business executives, entrepreneurs, school teachers, and students. KKC also draws on its survey network of 4,000 individuals living in Japan to understand their candid perspectives toward business.

KKC is simultaneously a “base” of intellectual exchange on important issues related to corporate management, such as media relations, corporate social responsibility, and international relations. KKC vigorously reaches out to its audience with printed and online publications presenting expert views on management and public policy as well as reliable information on Japan’s economy and society in international comparison.

These activities characterize KKC as a promoter of dialogue, a facilitator of intellectual networks, and an interpreter of today’s Japanese economy. KKC is an organization of Keidanren (Japan Business Federation).
