At the 25th EU-Japan Summit, which took place in Tokyo in July, two agreements have been signed that will significantly boost bilateral trade (the Strategic Partnership Agreement and the Economic Partnership Agreement). The Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and Japan creates an open trade zone covering over 600 million people and nearly a third of global GDP.

The EU Free Trade Agreement with Japan is on the way.
