Export to Japan: Introduction to the Online Training series

16-09-2020 | 10:30 - 11:00 CET

Are you going to benefit from the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement?

Various EU products and services began to enjoy benefits from the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) which entered in force on 1 February 2019, and we are seeing a considerable increase of EU exports to Japan.  But yet many EU exporters, particularly small and medium-scaled enterprises (SMEs) perceive access to Japanese market difficult because of unfamiliar trade and business practices.

This is a series of online training webinars which presents the latest market information available in 2020 and explain in practical terms the most important things that EU companies should know when exporting to Japan so that the benefits of free trade can become more widely available to EU exporters for the second year of the EU-Japan EPA. 

Prior to the online webinars, this is an introductory session for EU national agencies seeking to promote trade with Japan.  The topic of today’s webinar is to discuss the merits and procedures of EU-Japan EPA that EU SMEs can take advantage of.

The webinar is targeted to:  EU organisations supporting EU SMEs' internationalisation and EU companies exporting to Japan.
