EU - Japan
Event date: 16/11/2018
Negotiations on an EU-Japan trade agreement were officially launched in March 2013.
In its resolution of May 2011 on EU-Japan trade relations, the EP stressed that it supports the idea of an FTA between the EU and Japan. In June 2012, the EP adopted a resolution on EU trade negotiations with Japan where it requested that the Council withhold approval to launch the negotiations until the EP adopted its position on the proposed negotiating mandate.
