Japanese Speech Contest: Spoken Business Japanese
Dedicated to the memory of the late Sir Peter Parker
The purpose of the Sir Peter Parker Awards for Spoken Business Japanese is to deepen the understanding of Japanese business culture by businessmen and women of the countries of the European Union through study of the Japanese language, and to contribute to goodwill and mutual understanding with the people of Japan through better communication.
The Sir Peter Parker Awards for Spoken Business Japanese were established in 1990 by the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) London, and the SOAS, University of London. The Awards are widely recognised as having made a significant contribution to the recent growth in the use of Japanese in business, as well as having benefited participants in their professional careers.
Please see the flyer on top of the downloads for the details.
