EBC Policy Director Participates in a Free Trade Seminar
April 23, 2018

The EBC Policy Director, Bjorn Kongstad, participated as a moderator in a seminar on Japan - A Driver for Free Trade. The seminar was organised on 23 April by Team Sweden - Business Sweden, the Embassy of Sweden and the SCCJ. Key note speeches were given by the Swedish Minister for EU Affairs and Trade, Ann Linde, and METI's Director General for Trade Policy, Takehiko Matsuo. Both the speeches touched upon how unique the agreement between EU and Japan is, including issues that have never before been tackled by an FTA/EPA.

The speeches were then followed by a panel discussion made up of previously mentioned Takehiro Matsuo, Anna Stellinger (Director General of the National Board of Trade, Sweden), Tomohiro Kaneko of JETRO, and a long-standing friend of the EBC, and lastly Nobuhiro Asai, of Electrolux and also an EBC member. All members agreed with the previous key note speakers that the EU-Japan EPA had managed to set a new benchmark. However, to fully reap the benefits and make the best of the opportunities, companies and industry organisations would have to carefully monitor the agreement, while authorities should promote the agreement and educate businesses.
