The top level is zaikai. The zaikai is often described in English as 'business world' or 'financial circles', but it could better be defined as a 'group of people 33 H. 64). Zaikai functions through four functionally differentiated peak federations. The oldest and broadest is the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Nissho). 55 million small and medium-sized firms. It has served as a forum for small and medium-sized firms and represented their interests. 199).
