Businessclass, October 25 Available on From January 22, 2018 in the field of public procurement, the federal government has called for broad market liberalization. Important results have been achieved in this area. For example, one year after the agreement came into force or two years after a political agreement, Japan will abolish a broad derogation from transparent public procurement in the rail sector (the “operational safety clause”). It was a central German requirement. In addition, Japan provides market access to allocation procedures for universities, hospitals and “city centres.” The latter covers 48 cities with a population of about 300,000, or about 15% of the Japanese population. European Commission (2018) The AGREEMENT between the EU and Japan is presented. Available for access from 6 February 2018 Between 2009 and 2011, trade in commercial services increased between the two partners, with the EU maintaining a stable surplus and Japan`s share of total EU imports also remained stable at just over 3%. [10] Eu-Japan relations are anchored in two documents: the 1991 Joint Declaration and the 2001 EU-Japan Action Plan. There is also a series of forums between the two, including an annual summit of heads of state and government and an inter-parliamentary body. [1] The two sides have now agreed to work towards a comprehensive free trade agreement, which was discussed at the 42nd G7 Summit on 27 May 2016. Four agreements have been signed to date by both parties; [2] A number of informal bilateral dialogues and other specific initiatives have been put in place to support trade relations between the EU and Japan: relations between the European Union (EU) and Japan date back to 1959. They have a strong commercial relationship, particularly with regard to investment flows.
