Japanese Bankers Association
|Japanese Bankers Association|
The Japanese Bankers Association (JBA) takes the lead in dealing with issues confronting the banking industry, develops opinions and positions for the industry as a whole, and provides recommendations and requests to relevant domestic and foreign organizations and individuals. In addition to the public finance issues, JBA makes requests about the tax reforms and submits comments on many other issues. As of Oct. 31, 2007, JBA had 128 full members (banks), three Bank Holding Company Members (bank holding companies), 57 associate members (banks) and 61 special members (bankers associations) for a total of 249 members.
In addition to the JBA, there exist several other banking associations: The Regional Banks Association of Japan, the Second Association of Regional Banks, and the Trust Companies Association of Japan, each of which work for the common interests particular to its member banks.
In April of 2008, the head of the Japanese Bankers' Association said that the impact of the U.S. subprime crisis on Japanese banks would be limited as they had more or less dealt with their exposure to risky securities products.
