Factsheet on EU-Japan strategic partnership

The EU-Japan strategic partnership continues to grow deeper and more dynamic.

The partnership is based on longstanding cooperation, common interests and shared values, supporting human rights and democracy, multilateralism, and a rules-based international order based on the UN Charter, as well as open, free and fair trade and a green transition. Japan is the EU’s closest strategic partner in the Indo-Pacific region and a key ally for the implementation of the EU Strategy for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific released in September 2021. A factsheet summarizing the main aspects of the agreement was released in July by the European External Action Service (EEAS).
