Message from the EU Ambassador

Two years since the start of their implementation, the EU – Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) are boosting our ability to deliver tangible benefits for businesses in Europe and in Japan.

Today the COVID-19 pandemic, the growing impact of climate change and environmental challenges make the EU – Japan cooperation more necessary than ever.

At the EU – Japan summit on 27 May 2021 our leaders launched the EU-Japan Green Alliance, which will boost coordinated efforts on both sides to accelerate climate and environmental action. Through this alliance, we will deepen our cooperation on the energy transition, environmental protection, regulatory and business cooperation, R&D, sustainable finance and facilitating the transition in third countries.


Message from the EBC

Every year for the past 20 years, the EBC has welcomed you to a new White Paper. From that perspective, nothing has changed. However, things will not be the same from now on. We would like to welcome you to the first EBC digital White Paper named Together Towards A More Sustainable Future.

Instead of printing a White Paper once a year, the digital White Paper will give us the opportunity to always present you the most updated issues and recommendations. It will also provide us with the possibility to better follow an issue over time, to add changes, and to keep issues that have been resolved. In previous years, issues that had been resolved were removed from the White Paper to make space for more pressing issues.
