The French Chamber is glad to announce, in collaboration with BNP Paribas Japan, the seminar “Focus on the Euro-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement” on Thursday, January 24, 2019, at the office of BNP Paribas Japan.

The Euro-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will become effective as soon as February 1st, 2019 and will have an important impact on European firms operating in Japan. The agreement will facilitate and liberalize bilateral EU-Japan trade, including removing the vast majority of the €1 billion duties paid annually by European companies exporting to Japan.

On this occasion, Francesco Formiconi, Executive Director of the European Business Council, will present everything to know before the entry into force of the agreement: the main benefits, opportunities and the importance of monitoring its proper implementation. He will be joined by Sylwia Czerska, Second Secretary, Trade Section of Delegation of the European Union to Japan, responsible, among other things, for the implementation of the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement and for the agricultural policy.

Do not miss this seminar, as it will be your last chance to learn more about this agreement before its entry into force.
