We want to support you in “Doing Your Best”


JP Cooperative Association is a cooperative established based on the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Cooperative Association Law after examination by related ministries and agencies.

Its mission is to play a part in the promotion of small and medium-sized enterprises, which is the purpose of enacting the law. Based on the spirit of mutual aid, it aims to carry out businesses related to union members and contribute to management improvement.
In recent years, labor shortages have become a serious problem in Japan due to a shortage of human resources in an aging society with a declining birthrate. We will expand the possibilities of further social contribution and overseas expansion by leading to the transformation and productivity.

As a bridge to this, our union will make efforts so that companies can contribute to building relationships with foreign technical intern trainees through the "foreign technical intern training system".
