The EU and Japan
Really getting things done?
The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) were concluded in 2018 and have now entered the implementation phase. What kind of concrete steps have the EU (and its member states) and Japan taken to strengthen cooperation, coordination and synergies in view of both agreements’ ambitious agenda?
This 1-day conference accompanied by a public forum/panel addresses these question and pinpoints common areas of interest where EU and Japan cooperation could make a difference. The conference, thus, will besides assessing progress, analyse likely areas for cooperation. The purpose of the conference is to move the process and come up with suggestions for the next steps to take.
