EU-Japan FTA: towards Open Markets and Stronger Economies!

EU-Japan Trade

EU-Japan Trade

 

EU Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska:

“If we can work together effectively on the basis of open markets, our economies will gain, our businesses will gain, and our consumers will gain,” insisted EU Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska in her speech at the EU-Japan Business Round Table in Tokyo to an audience that included Japanese Cabinet Ministers and businesspeople.

“The free trade agreement that we are negotiating will stimulate growth on both sides.

She noted that there are those who believe markets and borders should be shut, but pointed to the fact that this has not worked historically. If Japan and the EU are to move forward and grow economically, these voices of opposition must be proven wrong; and in order to do this, both entities must work closely together.”    (EUROBIZ News)

 

Very well. Enough negotiations: When will a deal be signed?? Meanwhile, because of  higher trade tariffs, Europeans companies are loosing ground (market shares) in Japan to US rivals and others!!
