EU and Japan agree a historic free and fair trade deal!
☀ Leaders reached a political agreement in principle on two landmark agreements, the Economic Partnership Agreement and the Strategic Partnership Agreement, which will bring huge benefits to the populations of both the European Union and Japan
☀ The depth of this agreement goes beyond free trade. It makes a statement about the future of open and fair trade in today’s world. It sets the standard for others. As far as we are concerned, there is no protection in protectionism. Only by working together will we be able to set global standards when it comes to safety, environmental or consumer protection said the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.
☀ Before attending the G20 Hamburg Summit tomorrow EU and Japan discussed their cooperation in other important areas, including on joint efforts to address the global threat of climate change and other international challenges.
