Consul General

CHENNAI: The Indo-Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IJCCI) rolled out the red carpet for the incoming Consul General (CG) for Japan in Chennai, Seiji Baba, on Tuesday.  A welcome reception was organised at the Hotel Savera, with members of IJCCI assuring the new CG that the chamber would soon turn into a centre of excellence for Indo-Japan economic ties.

Welcoming Baba and his wife Atsuko Baba, president of the chamber N Kuma said that the centre had already taken several measures in improving Indo-Japanese economic ties. “But the chamber will soon become a centre of excellence in this sphere,  and we are already taking steps towards the realisation of that aim,” he said.

Chairman of the chamber, N Krishnaswami, listed out the means by which the said transformation would be taking place. “It is a challenge and we have already begun it. The chamber will begin putting out publications, a bi-monthly newsletter and bi-monthly resource papers, as a first step,” he said.

Baba, for his part, seemed charmed by both the welcome and the city. “I am very happy to be in this city, with which we already have a strong connection, and look forward to playing a role in developing further ties with the community here,” he said, while adding that the chamber could look forward to unstinted cooperation from him over the coming months. K C Rajan, director and secretary, and R Ramakrishnaraja, director and treasurer, IJCCI, were also present.
