KEIZAI DOYUKAI (Japan Association of Corporate Executives) is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that was formed in 1946 by 83 far-sighted business leaders united by a common desire to contribute to the reconstruction of the Japanese economy. In the more than 65 years since then, KEIZAI DOYUKAI has solidified its leadership role in improving the Japanese economic community and in seeking solutions to numerous domestic problems and ensuring the overall well-being of Japanese society.
KEIZAI DOYUKAI membership comprises approximately 1,300 top executives of some 900 large corporations, all sharing the common belief that corporate managers should be key players in a broad range of political, economic, and social issues. Within KEIZAI DOYUKAI, each member sheds his/her corporate identity and participates as an individual, free to express opinions and ideas distinct from any specific company or industry. This feature distinguishes KEIZAI DOYUKAI from other economic organizations, giving it a broad, long-term perspective and ensuring objectivity and clarity in the discussions of issues.
