It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Mr Chris Atwell, Chair of the Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan from 2002-2004. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
Read Chris Atwell's farewell message to ANZCCJ when he left Japan to return to Australia in 2004.
As I conclude my employment assignment of over 4 years in Japan and whilst into my 42nd working year, I have elected to retire from ANZ Banking Group Limited.
Throughout my time in Tokyo, I have been privileged to have been able to be a part of the life of the ANZCCJ and its membership, and leave Japan in the confidence that the Chamber will continue to thrive and play an ongoing and relevant role to the Australian and New Zealand business communities here.
Both Barbara and I wish you well in your business careers and also long life and happiness for the future.
In the event that you are passing through Sydney in the future, we would be delighted to have the opportunity to catch up.
Our contact details are held by the Secretariat/Manager.
