EBC EPA Event 28 February 16:30
ebc-logo140eu_delegationEU-Japan_centre The EBC would like to invite you to celebrate the conclusion of the Economic Partnership Agreement. As you know the EBC has for a long time, going back all the way to 2006, asked for a trade agreement between the EU and Japan. This journey has indeed been a roller coaster ride with many ups and down. However, as we are here now today we would like to celebrate this historical event with you.

The event will be held at the EU Delegation on 28 February from 16:30. Pls see the flyer for more information and how to register.
(Registration is CLOSED now! We have reached full capacity.)

We at the EBC Secretariat hope to see you there.

Tariff Schedule of Japan under EPA Available Online
EU-Japan_flag The full text of the EU-Japan EPA has been available since early December at http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/press/index.cfm?id=1684 but did not include the tariff reductions/elimination details and dismantling periods for Japan. This information is now available at http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2017/december/tradoc_156519.pdf and should be of interest to companies bringing products currently subject to tariffs into Japan.

EBC 2017 Report on the Japanese Business Environment Published

2017_WP_cover_E
The EBC is pleased to announce that its 2017 Report on the Japanese Business Environment has been published and is now available. Entitled, "First Milestone Achieved", the report is timely. The EU-Japan EPA was just been concluded two weeks ago and is the first major milestone referred to in the title. It has taken more than four years of negotiations but finally both the EU and Japan have now committed to a new economic relationship, which will promote free and fair trade between two of the most important global economies. Read the report here: English / Japanese

EU-Japan EPA Negotiations Concluded
EU-Japan_flag
The EBC is delighted to announce that the EU and Japan concluded the EU-Japan EPA in Brussels on Friday, December 8. This agreement comes more than ten years after the EBC first requested the EU and Japanese Authorities to negotiate an economic integration agreement. It is due to come into effect during 2019. The content is comprehensive and deep and covers many non-tariff barriers submitted by the EBC to the EU negotiators. We compliment the European Commission negotiators on their success.
The full text of the agreement can be found at the following link:http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/press/index.cfm?id=1684
