We promote open trade and investment
We promote open markets for trade and investment. We place the free flow of goods and services, and the creation of a favourable environment for investment between the EU and Japan at the top of our agenda.
We support the deepening of EU-Japan trade relations through an ambitious Free Trade Agreement / Economic Partnership Agreement (FTA / EPA) and fair market access that will contribute substantially to industrial growth and job creation.
Beyond bilateral agreements, we foster cooperation between the EU and Japan to realise global multilateral agreements in order to bring economic advantages to all parties.
Securing the optimisation of returns on investment to the benefit of both economies is another key area of our commitment.
We support the timely development of business and strive to remove the administrative hurdles that our member companies face when integrating their European activities.
