(日本語テキストは英語の後に続きます)

Since US’s withdrawal from the TPP, Japan has taken a more active role in support of global trade and is stepping up its activities to forge new trade relations. The discussion will revolve around business opportunities emerging from the newly agreed EU-Japan free trade agreement as well as the Comprehensive and Progressive TPP (CPTPP). The discussion will also shed light on the business environment in Asia, including China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

What future opportunities will arise through these trade agreements, and how will the trade and infrastructure projects affect the way we are doing business today? What are the important factors for Swedish companies throughout this extensive transition? 

This event is organized in collaboration with Business Sweden and Embassy of Sweden. Participants from the High-Level Business Delegation from Sweden to Japan will join this seminar.

自由貿易への日本の道筋

 米国がTPPを離脱して以来、日本は新たな貿易環境の確立に向けてより一層、国際貿易の発展に注力してきました。議題はEUと日本の自由貿易協定(FTA)や 先進的環太平洋連携協定(CPTPP)から生じるビジネスへの影響に焦点が当てられます。また、中国の 「一帯一路」 を含むアジアの経済環境についても議論される予定です。昨今の貿易に関する取り決めからどのような機会が創出されるでしょうか。また、既存のビジネス社会にどのように影響してくるでしょうか。一連の変化の中で、スウェーデン企業が担う役割とはなんでしょうか。
