Depuis l’entrée en vigueur de l’accord de partenariat économique UE-Japon (APE) en février 2019, les exportations de produits alimentaires de l’UE vers le Japon ont fortement augmenté. Pourtant, de nombreux exportateurs européens estiment que l’accès au marché japonais reste difficile en raison de pratiques commerciales peu familières.

EU-Japan Centre, en collaboration avec EEN Wallonie, propose un webinaire à destination des producteurs et exportateurs wallons pour se familiariser avec le marché japonais et les procédures d’exportation vers le Japon.

Le webinaire aura lieu le jeudi 21 octobre de 10h30 à 12h30 et se déroulera en anglais.

Japan is currently the 5th most important export destination for EU agricultural products. The tariffs cuts resulting from the EPA will further boost EU-Japan trade for many agricultural, food & fish products. Japan has agreed to liberalise 87% of all agricultural tariff lines. These lines cover almost 90% of trade value. The EPA furthermore recognises and protects more than 200 EU Geographical Indications on the Japanese market..
