Description

The EU and Japan are important economic partners. They have been negotiating a bilateral free trade agreement since 2013. Both sides could benefit from this. More important than the potential GDP increase, however, would be the strategic value of such an agreement. In this era of Brexit and Trump, it would signal a clear commitment to economic cooperation and free trade.
