JAPAN – WEBINARS ON THE INITIATIVES FOR IMPLEMENTING THE EU-JAPAN ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT
The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation has organised a busy calendar of events, starting on Tuesday 2 March, in relation to the implementation of the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA).
The EPA, which entered into force on 1 February 2019, promotes the liberalisation of trade in goods and services, facilitating trade for small and medium enterprises, in particular, and involving over 635 million European and Japanese citizens, constituting the largest free trade area in the world and accounting for about one third of all global trade. The EPA will foster the forging of stronger ties between the partners, through increased access to each other's markets for goods, services and public procurement, the removal of non-tariff barriers, the protection of geographical indications and intellectual property rights, the protection of EU standards, and regulatory harmonisation between the two economies.
The events will take place online compatibly with the respective time zones and are available at the following link: https://www.eu-japan.eu/events
