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.

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.

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)
