AJBC Executive Committee members were privileged and honoured to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on his recent Perth visit.

When Prime Minister Kishida visited Perth in late October, the Australia Japan Business Council of WA (AJBC) was delighted that two of its executives were invited to privately meet with him.


Ms Mayumi Laughton-Smith, AJBC Deputy Chair, was one of only 13 guests to meet with the Prime Minister at a dinner function hosted by the Japanese Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency Mr Yamagami Shingo.  Mr Andrew Tan, AJBC Executive Member and President & CEO for Oceania –  Chiyoda, was one of a few select corporate invitees to attend the business leaders’ luncheon.


The importance of AJBC, a dedicated business council to represent the mutual interests of Japanese and Western Australian businesses, cannot be overstated.
