The ANZCCJ SME Networking Community is intended for SMEs and Individual members doing business between Japan and Australia / New Zealand, as well as Japanese returnees from Australia or New Zealand, or members who are about to start a new business in Japan. Register as a ‘Provider’ on this member-driven online platform to offer your skills and services to other members in need, or as a ‘Seeker’ to find someone who can meet your own needs. Reborn from the SME Support Program in December 2020, this is a new community lead by the ANZCCJ Secretariat. Through regular two-way communication, we hope to flexibly reflect your wants/needs and create an active and meaningful network.
