HISTORY of
KEIZAI DOYUKAI

Keizai Doyukai does not represent the interests of any one specific industry or enterprise. It is organized to benefit the economy as a whole with the objective of actively encouraging the reflection in national economic policies of conclusions reached through study and research into Japan's varied economic problems. Consequently, the Keizai Doyukai's membership is not comprised of corporations or other similar organizations, but consists of individual executives in managerial positions who are currently active in the fore of the nation's economy. Today, its membership has grown to approximately 1,000 persons, all leading executives in their respective fields, and it has supporters in associate groups throughout Japan.

Founded to work on problems of postwar reconstruction, Keizai Doyukai has been extremely active in all phases of Japan's economy. Its advocacy of the need for the improvement of productivity, has led it to assume the principal role in establishing the Japan Productivity Center. The basic spirit and purpose behind Keizai Doyukai's various activities has always been to achieve: the proper and healthy development of the system of free enterprise, the enhancement of national welfare, and the building of a social environment which would assist in realizing these goals. These activities and efforts have gained the full recognition and appreciation of the government, political parties, and the labor movement.

Keizai Doyukai has also been an ardent advocater of modernization of management controls by business executives. It is also a firm advocate of the need for strong leadership by management in modern society, and of management's responsibility to society.

Another of its important tasks is the training of management personnel for the next generation -- who must inherit and carry on this spirit.

Keizai Doyukai also has had as one of its important objectives the bringing about of Japan's return to international society. Toward this end, Keizai Doyukai has devoted much effort to the exchange of persons, fact-finding and study missions between Japan, the United States and Europe. It has also made significant contributions to the Japan-India economic cooperation studies that were undertaken as part of the work to promote the economic cooperation of the countries of Southeast Asia.
