On Thursday 16th June some of the NCCJ management committee members had the opportunity to share a last lunch (not supper) with Jeroen Dalderop, recently retired chairman of the NCCJ, before he leaves for the Netherlands with his family.

We met at K’shiki on the 38th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo.  It was a nice opportunity to share some memories and thoughts, to thank Jeroen for his excellent contribution to the chamber, and to wish him well for the next chapter in his life.
