US threats on the Japanese Car Industry


 

“US President Donald Trump wasted no time after the results of the midterm elections to step up the pressure on another long-term trade and security partner, criticising Tokyo for treating the United States unfairly on trade and hinting he will go ahead with a plan to impose tariffs on imported Japanese cars.

Japan and the US are expected to open negotiations on a bilateral trade agreement in the early part of next year, with the Trump administration expected to push hard for increased market access for vehicles and the agriculture sector.

The president has previously suggested he is prepared to impose a 25 per cent tariff on imports of Japanese cars, which would cripple manufacturers.” (South China Morning Post)

Mastering the cultural, linguistic, social, economic, technical and business specificities of the Far East and in particular of Japan is not an easy thing and demands a certain amount of investment in time and resources.

For this purpose, Philippe Huysveld, Japan expert and senior consultant in Europe-Japan business at the consulting firm GBMC (Global Business & Management Consulting, www.gbmc.biz), has written and proposes to you his series of books about Japan, entitled « Japan Series ».

Made of 6 books, available as well in digital format (eBook) as in paper format (paperback), this collection’s objective is to share with business men, students, Japan “aficionados” and the general public about the various aspects of the Land of the Rising Sun.

“James P. Allison and Tasuku Honjo won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their groundbreaking work in cancer immunotherapy. Cancerous tumors are notoriously skilled at dodging our immune systems. That’s because our immune systems typically fight off foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses, and mostly ignore the cells created within our bodies — which include cancer cells.”  (Source: PBS)

Another Nobel Prize for 京大 – Kyoto University (Japan)!!

La sonde japonaise Hayabusa-2 a largué vendredi deux micro-robots au-dessus d’un astéroide  (Ryugu) sur lequel ces engins sont censé se poser pour recueillir des informations sur la naissance du système solaire et l’origine de la vie.

Si ces robots Minerva de deuxième génération parviennent à  destination et font leur travail, il s’agira du premier succès mondial pour ce type de mission, après une précédente tentative japonaise ratée en 2005.” (Source: AFP)

Panasonic is moving its EU headquarters to Amsterdam ahead of Brexit


“We cannot wait”: Panasonic is moving its EU headquarters to Amsterdam ahead of Brexit” tells us Panasonic Europe’s CEO Laurent Abadie. We have been studying this for almost one year, and evaluating everything, and then we decided a few months ago to move forward. He added that the company had examined potential tax issues, as well as its ability to move goods and capital, before deciding that it had to move.

Abadie added that, for many Japanese companies, the UK has long served as an entry door to the European market. “After Brexit, the UK cannot be the entry door to Europe any more, that’s a fact.”   (Quarz)

Le prince héritier du Japon Naruhito était à Paris mercredi. Reçu au château de Versailles, il a assisté à un spectacle de théâtre Nô avant un diner officiel.

Pour la troisième fois, Emmanuel Macron a choisi le somptueux décor de Versailles comme atout diplomatique, en accueillant mercredi soir au château royal le prince héritier du Japon Naruhito.

Devant une haie d’honneur de gardes républicains, le président a souhaité la bienvenue à son hôte dans la Cour royale, avant un entretien en tête-à-tête dans l’un des salons. Les deux hommes ont ensuite assisté dans l’Opéra royal à un spectacle de théâtre Nô mélangeant tradition et images en 3D. Un dîner officiel était ensuite organisé dans le vestibule haut de la chapelle royale.

Une centaine de personnalités françaises et japonaises des secteurs culturel, institutionnel et économique étaient invitées au spectacle et au dîner.” (Paris Match)

The EU–Japan EPA (Economic Partnership Agreement) is signed!!

EU-Japan Trade

EU-Japan Trade

“History was made in Tokyo on 17 July 2018. At the 25th EU–Japan Summit, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, for the long-awaited signing of the EU–Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). It is set to become the world’s largest bilateral agreement, covering 600 million people and nearly a third of global trade.

Formal negotiations began in 2013 and were finally concluded last December. The initial aims of the agreement were to solidify the economic relationship between the EU and Japan by removing tariffs, creating more transnational business opportunities and promoting job creation. However, in the political context of 2018, the EPA also represents the ongoing commitment of both the EU and Japan to free trade, fair trade and friendship.”  (source: EURO Biz)
