About EBC Committees: 
T
he EBC Automotive Components & Aftermarket Committee
whats new - logistics2
European automotive component and systems manufacturers continue to face difficulties in promoting European technical expertise to the Japanese automobile industry, mainly due to continued reluctance in the industry to outsource product development on a global basis. This defies the trend towards single platform development and volume production. Against this background, the committee engages in ongoing, regular dialogue between European component manufacturers and Japanese carmakers as a vital mechanism for sharing information and promoting understanding, with the aim of fostering increased opportunities for mutually beneficial business development.

whats new - food
Healthcare in Japan is of a high standard with the country enjoying the highest average life expectancy and lowest infant mortality rates in the world. However, a number of inefficiencies in the system need to be addressed. The EBC Medical Equipment Committee works closely with the Japanese Government, specifically the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) and the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), as well as the related industry associations to establish an environment that allows innovative European medical equipment to be delivered adequately to patients in Japan.

About EBC Committees: 
The EBC Insurance Committee

asset The Japanese insurance market is the second largest in the world, and is key to global insurance groups. European insurers bring their expertise to the market and provide proven insurance products to the Japanese consumer to meet their insurance needs, but continue to encounter regulatory obstacles that can limit efficient development of their businesses. The EBC Insurance Committee works to achieve a principles-based regulatory regime, under which the regulator focuses on risk management and allows innovation and flexibility, thereby allowing the insurance market to adapt appropriately and deal with changes in policyholder needs and changing financial conditions.
