A kagami biraki, or traditional sake barrel-breaking ceremony, set the scene for GAC Japan’s cocktail party to mark the 60th anniversary of the GAC Group. Close to 300 customers, partners and staff from across the GAC Group attended the event at Palace Hotel Tokyo.

GAC has been providing marketing and marine consultancy services in Tokyo since the 1990s. In March 2015, an operations office was set up to cater to the growing demand for ship agency and husbandry services in light of Japan’s burgeoning energy sector.
