President's Message

先憂後楽 (Hardship first, pleasures later) 
Since the establishment of IJBC in 2011, we saw some great milestones of achievement in IJBC's short time span. However, I want to assure the members and business community, student members and all concerned, that each inch of progress, each yard of the progressive movement is important. Realizing this, me and my team will make sure that We will work towards promoting Industrial Trade, Commerce, Cultural and Educational activities between two countries, through small yet result oriented efforts. Just like a rope, wherein there are hundreds and thousands of small threads, we will bond with you all. Let us all make a collective effort in this regards.
