“Together with Japan, we are sending a strong signal to the world that two of its biggest economies still believe in open trade, opposing both unilateralism and protectionism. The economic benefits of this agreement are clear. By removing billions of euros of duties, simplifying customs procedures and tackling behind-the-border barriers to trade, it will offer opportunities for companies on both sides to boost their exports and expand their business.”
— Ms Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner for Trade, 1st EU-Japan EPA Forum Copenhagen, April 12, 2018
“This EPA carries special importance for Japan as it is a ‘decisive tool’ in our growth strategy.”
— Mr Taro Kono, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Japan, 1st EU-Japan EPA Forum Copenhagen, April 12, 2018
“Corporate development executives are increasingly looking outside their sector to acquire new technologies, new customers, and new talent. Chief Financial Officers, Corporate Development Officers and Transaction Leaders in all sectors need to determine whether their M&A playbook is still fit for purpose”
— Brian Salsberg, Partner, Global Buy and Integrate Leader, EY
