Public talk: The New International Economic Order seen from Japan
October 30, 2017 - 08:30-10:00
Public talk by Professor Fukunari Kimura
Moderated by Professor Jakob Roland Munch
Although the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) was regarded as one of the essential pillars of economic reform under the Abe Administration, the so-called Abenomics, the walkout by the US from TPP forces Japan to readjust its international commercial policies. A political agreement on the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement in July 2017 may become a key element in a new international economic order. Professor Kimura will share his views on the agreement and also touch upon the impact of Brexit on further negotiations and future Japan-EU relations.
