EU-Japan Event Invitation on July 12th

6 July 2017

The EU-Japan summit on 6 July which announced a political agreement on the FTA and a strategic partnership agreement (SPA) will lead to a significant deepening of the relationship. Japan is the EU’s second biggest market in Asia. More than 70,000 EU companies export to Japan (worth 86 billion euros) involving 600,000 jobs. The FTA could give a massive boost to food exports as well as chemicals and machinery. The SPA will also deepen cooperation on global issues, eg the world economy, climate change and migration, and regional problems such as the situation in Ukraine, relations with Russia, Syria, the Middle East and the DPRK.

To assess prospects for EU-Japan relations you are invited to a panel discussion from 17:00 - 18:30 at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, on 12 July.
