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.
