On 15 May, JBCE was invited by Mr. Pedro Silva Pereira MEP – who is the standing rapporteur of the EU-Japan EPA – to speak at the European Parliament INTA Monitoring Group on Japan.

Mr. Lars Brückner, Vice-Chairman of JBCE, Ms. Sandra Alverà, Trade Policy Committee Chair, and Mr. Ryota Tsunemi, Policy Manager of Trade Policy Committee represented JBCE.

Mr. Brückner contributed to the discussion by providing JBCE’s position on the EU-Japan EPA, which the MEPs and participants appreciated.

JBCE would like to continue to support the smooth ratification of the EPA and the appropriate implementation.
