Message from the President
ILCC was established in 1976, the year in which Sadako Ogata was appointed as Minister to Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations, a landmark first for a Japanese woman.
The founders of ILCC were a group of bilingual woman who had lived or studied abroad, a rarity in Japan at the time. Their motivation in establishing a new company was based on a strong desire to utilize their language skills and international experience to assist other people.
This sense of mission and dedication to assist others remains as true as it was about 40 years ago. It is the philosophy that runs through ILCC’s corporate DNA.
Although the Japanese market is shrinking due to various demographic factors such as aging and declining birthrates, on the other hand the high-paced development of travel and communications has created a truly global economy. Corporations, organizations and individuals that could once engage successfully in business with a purely domestic focus are now looking toward global markets. While it is easy to talk about “global communication”, differences in language, culture and customs are not easily overcome.
At ILCC we are dedicated to assisting you to overcome the differences that stand in the way of putting across what it is you actually want to communicate. Our desire to assist stems from our belief that global communication can only be achieved when both sides can understand each other.
We will continue to put our professional skills at your service, working together to help grow your global business with our wide range of communication services.ILCC Co., Ltd
