EPA Helpdesk Webinar 2: Opportunities for European SMEs in Japan's government procurement market

What additional opportunities will the EPA offer to European SMEs?

The EU-Japan Economic partnership Agreement (EPA), expected to come into force in 2019, will give European companies additional opportunities in Japan’s government or public procurement market. While European companies already have enjoyed access to Japanese government contracts under the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA), the EPA builds upon the GPA and gives European companies additional access to procurement by Japanese government entities and extra assurances to compete with Japanese companies on a level playing field.

This webinar is part of a series of webinars by the EU-Japan EPA Helpdesk. Each webinar will address a different topic or sector and will look at the changes the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will make and the opportunities it will create. Each webinar will be accompanied by a factsheet and a practical guide. For more information on the EPA Helpdesk please click here.

The webinar was targeted to European SMEs seeking to understand and benefit from the EU-Japan EPA.

Date of webinar: 13 December 2018

Topics covered:

  • Understand what the added benefits are from the EPA
  • Access information regarding procurement opportunities in Japan
  • The process of government procurement works in Japan
  • To prepare for participation in government procurement in Japan

Speakers: Lyckle Griek, Project-manager, EU-Japan Centre - Japan Tax & Public Procurement Helpdesk.

Organiser: EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation - Brussels Office
