About EBC Committees: 
The EBC Logistics & Freight Committee

whats new - logistics2
European companies offering Japanese consumers access to their worldwide logistic operations have largely been successful, but still face serious regulatory challenges. The EBC Logistics & Freight Committee aims to eliminate distorted competition caused by a discrepancy in the rules and regulations applied to carriers providing the same services, prohibitive costs, insufficient infrastructure at airports, and restrictions on foreign-owned carriers as these problems ultimately result in inefficiencies and higher prices for users.

About EBC Committees: 
The EBC Food & Agriculture Committee

whats new - food
The EBC Food & Agriculture Committee works closely with all relevant parties in the Government of Japan and the European Commission to bring about effective change to provide consumers in Japan with a much wider variety of safe, high-quality food. Tariffs should be abolished, standards harmonised and the market authorisations of both regions mutually recognised. The committee firmly believes this can be achieved without compromising food safety. This will lead to more choice in supermarkets, stimulation of healthy competition in the food and agricultural sectors of both zones, and greater accessibility to European food, something we know Japanese consumers would appreciate.   Contact the EBC Secretariat at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
