Japan and the EU concluded negotiations for an economic partnership agreement last December and the pact will be signed on June 17th in Brussels. They expect it to take effect early 2019, before Britain leaves the EU late March 2019. Once ratified, this pact will encompass a population of about 600 million people in 29 countries that account for roughly 30% of the world's gross domestic product.
Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement Will Create Major New Trade and Investment Opportunities
Brussels, July 13.– With a highly favourable business climate, global-leading innovation and one of the largest economic agreements in the world to be signed shortly, Japan is in a better position to attract business investment than ever before.
This was the message a group of more than 120 industry experts, researchers, policy makers and corporate leaders heard at a packed seminar in downtown Brussels' Stanhope Hotel today. While Japan and the EU prepare for the historic signing of the Japan-European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) on July 17th, the Government of Japan hosted an engaging session that highlighted how the EPA will not only increase and modernize free, fair and open trade, but will also open up tremendous business opportunities between Japan and the EU.Add a comment Leer más...
