PRODUCTION OF EBC'S YEAR 2017 WHITE PAPER - CALL FOR SPONSORSHIP & PRE-ORDERS

2016_WP_E_front_page The EBC White Paper continues to be at the forefront of trade policy discussions with both the Japanese and European Authorities and is the most tangible product of our committees' year-long deliberations and advocacy activities. We are now seeking sponsors for the 2017 edition of this important document.

Release of this year's report will be especially critical as its release is expected to coincide with the conclusion of negotiations for an EU-Japan FTA/EPA. It is essential for EBC committees to continue applying pressure on both authorities through this report. Negotiated items must be implemented. The many issues not included in the FTA and new issues must be addressed.
