While global trade is facing challenges driven by protectionism, the new Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) is an important milestone to put in place a common economic space and area of shared values with a population of over 600 million.
At the same time, with ever-faster digital transformation, we experience an era of enormous change, which has an effect not only on our lives and societies, but also on the way trade and financial systems work.
How can Germany and Japan, in this rapidly changing economic and social environment, cooperate effectively, in and through international organizations, to foster a fair, sustainable and rules-based multilateral system?
To address such issues, the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB) and the Alumni Association of the German-Japanese Young Leaders Forum in cooperation with the United Nations University’s Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) will jointly host this
"International Trade and Digital Transformation: A Bright Future for Germany and Japan?"
on Friday, 13 September 2019, from 1.30 pm until 6.30 pm
at the United Nations University (2F Reception Hall, 5–53–70 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tōkyō)
