BusinessEurope calls for strong regulatory framework in EU-Japan FTA

Speaking at the EU-Japan Business Round Table that took place in Tokyo this week, BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: "The EU-Japan free-trade agreement negotiations should not only actively address non-tariff barriers but also establish a long-lasting framework that prevents future regulatory divergences." The EU will soon be conducting a review of the EU-Japan negotiations and the assessment will be very much based on the progress achieved addressing non-tariff barriers.
