Mimura to Serve as JCCI Chief for Rare Third Term

Mimura to Serve as JCCI Chief for Rare Third Term

   Tokyo, Feb. 8 (Jiji Press)--Akio Mimura, chairman of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is set to serve in the post for a rare third term.
   A JCCI chairman normally serves for two terms, for a total of six years. Mimura's current second three-year term is scheduled to end at the end of October this year.
   Mimura, 78, also chairman of the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will be the first JCCI chief to serve for three terms since the late Kosaku Inaba, who stayed in the post from 1993 to 2001.
   Many in the Tokyo chamber are asking Mimura to keep the top JCCI post beyond the currently scheduled expiration, in the lead-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.
   At a key meeting on Thursday, the Tokyo chamber decided to support Mimura continuing to serve as JCCI chairman beyond October. A chairman of the Tokyo chamber customarily doubles as chairman of the JCCI, which has 1.25 million small companies as its members.
