New chances for Japanese companies with the Economic Partnership Agreement

The new Economic Partnership Agreement between the European Union and Japan will have a very positive economic impact and opens up new possibilities and interest for Japanese and EU exporters alike. Amongst others, the remaining tariffs are to be abolished in the near future.

The Austrian Business Agency, Business Finland and CzechInvest will host a joint seminar presenting an overview of new business opportunities in the European Union and how to set up operations in their prospective countries.

The representatives of well-established Japanese companies will give an inside view about the ease as well as possible problems of their operations with and in the EU.
Afterwards you will have a chance to do some networking while enjoying a European buffet.
