In 1939 the Japanese diplomatic legation was officially opened in Bulgaria. In 1942 Bulgaria opens its diplomatic legation in Japan.
With an interruption of several years, the diplomatic relationships between the two countries exists more than 80 years.

Today, Japanese business is widely represented in Bulgaria in various economic sectors like automotive, IT, pharmaceuticals, foods, tobacco, among others.
The intensified presence of leading Japanese corporations makes it natural for Japanese businesses in Bulgaria to have a platform to exchange information on the local business, political and economic climate, exchange experience among members, promote mutual bilateral investments and support a positive business environment. This platform is Japan-Bulgaria Business Association (JBBA).
The mission of Japan-Bulgaria Business Association is to promote the existing Japanese businesses in Bulgaria, to support Japanese businesses aiming to establish presence in Bulgaria and to encourage and support the bilateral business relations between the two countries
