Welcome to the Sri Lanka Business Council of Japan (SLBCJ)

The SLBCJ is a non-profit organization set up in year 2003 on the initiative of the Sri Lankan Government to develop trade relations, investment and tourism between Sri Lanka and Japan.
With the support of the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Tokyo and owing to the dedication of its members, the SLBCJ has accomplished its mission with success during those 15 years. The SLBCJ has been playing a leading role in the development of the Sri Lankan business community in Japan in a growing number of business sectors and industries (Food&Beverages, tea, jewelry, IT) and in the promotion of Japanese investment to Sri Lanka.
During this term, the SLBCJ will be committed to maintaining momentum while pursuing improvements on the basis of years of experience of its members. The SLBCJ will organize regular thematic workshops, exhibitions and introduction programs about the most representative business activities in Sri Lanka and within the Sri Lankan community in Japan.
As experts in their industries, SLBCJ vice-presidents will be responsible for supporting Japanese organizations doing business with Sri Lanka in their sector. They will also provide information and support to new comers in the Sri Lankan business community in Japan.
Else, the SLBCJ will be proud to assist the Sri Lankan Embassy and Embassy staff in their mission, for instance during events promoting Sri Lanka in Japan.
The SLBCJ will contribute as much as possible, within the limits of its attributions, to improve relations between Japan and Sri Lanka.
Please feel free to contact the SLBCJ at any time for further information.
