European Parliament News announces that Parliament has endorsed a ‘landmark’ EU-Japan free trade agreement to allow free trade and remove most duties on EU goods exported to Japan. Wine, cheese, beef, pork, pasta, chocolate and biscuits will enter duty-free either immediately or after a transition period, it states, and 205 products with European geographical indications will be protected, to help small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) which make up 78 percent of exporters to Japan. In terms of railways, “Japan opens up its rail procurement market and public procurement in its main cities to European competition. E-commerce, international maritime transport and postal services will also be liberalised.” Read that in full here.
