How does the EU-Japan EPA impact the various segments of the maritime transport industry?

The maritime transport industry is a critical part of the supply chain and trade network of almost all goods industries and markets in the world. As such, it plays a vital role in the stability and growth of trade and production across the entire economy. As an island-nation, the maritime trade industry is of particular strategic and economic relevance to Japan. The EU-Japan EPA enumerates and provides extensive detail concerning coverage, access and protection to the maritime transport industry for Japanese and European firms conducting business between each other. 

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.
