Prospects for EU-Japan relations
The EU-Asia Centre and the Institute for European Studies (IES) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel invite you to a panel discussion on ‘Prospects for EU-Japan Relations’ at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, from 17:00-18:30 (followed by a reception) on 4 March.
Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida and the EU’s High Representative Mogherini recently had a productive meeting in Brussels. They looked forward to the next EU-Japan summit involving Messrs. Abe, Juncker and Tusk. The EU and Japan are seeking to conclude their political/security and free trade negotiations this year. It is expected that these agreements will give a significant boost to EU-Japan relations but where should the priorities lie? As like-minded actors the EU and Japan could be working much more closely together in the security field – tackling proliferation, cyber- crime, terrorism as well as regional security. To discuss the potential for EU-Japan relations we have invited a mix of EU and Japanese experts and officials for a panel discussion.
