Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI)

Nihon Shōkō Kaigisho

The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) is a trade organization of businesses and companies that promote business activities both locally and nationally in Japan, including protecting businesses, sharing business experience, connecting business with governments, and organizing trade shows and events.

In 2016, the JCCI published a report on constitutional discussion. In the report, the JCCI states that Japan should respect the three principles of the current constitution (popular sovereignty, respect for fundamental human rights, and pacifism) but make the following revisions: add a sense of Japanese solidarity and identity to the Preamble; specify the right of self-defense and maintenance and overseas-posting of the Self-Defense Forces; clarify the restriction of citizens' rights regarding public welfare; specify the development of local autonomous bodies; and nurture a sense of nationality among students through a revised Fundamental Law of Education (the Fundamental Law of Education was revised in 2018).
