EU-Japan: trade negotiations progress


Last week in
Tokyo, negotiators discussed a wide range of topics related to the EU-Japan
free trade agreement, including anti-dumping rules, tariffs and quotas, access
to public tenders, trade in services, health and hygiene rules, e-commerce,
rules of origin, facilitation of customs procedures and investment.

The EU will
now review the progress achieved during the first year of talks and assess
Japan's implementation of commitments before the negotiations start, such as
the liberalization of its distribution services sector. EuroCommerce supports
the continuation of the negotiations and advocates the removal of existing
tariff barriers (especially on food, liquor and leather shoes) and favours
joint standards, mutual recognition of standards, and certifications schemes
for consumer products.
