I would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and readers of this bulletin for a great, and for me a much rewarding, cooperation and friendship over the 20 years I have been in charge of the chamber. I am confident that Antti will be successful in taking over running the chamber and bring new young vigor and vitality. He will naturally also keep you abreast of what is happening in and around the chambers with bulletins like this.

Our next event (members only) is the Annual General Assembly on Tuesday, 2 April at the Embassy of Finland. The dead-line for registration has already passed, but if some of our members have forgotten to register, we can still take a few if you sign up today.

The next event is a Breakfast Meeting with the new Finnair CEO Topi Manner on Wednesday, 10 April. There are two more events in April - the FEEL FINLAND Open Day at the Embassy on Sunday, 14 April organized by Team Finland, which unfortunately is fully booked, and a CLIC event on Wednesday, 17 April. Details about these below.

We have a new contribution this week from our "Aoyama View" columnist, this time titled: "Japan's Best Kept Secret and Legacy of Heisei Time".
