The EU and Japan confirmed their joint commitment to reach a swift conclusion on a bilateral trade deal and a Strategic Partnership Agreement.
EU and Japanese negotiators will meet for a new round of talks in Tokyo in April, and the process will intensify further thereafter, European Commission announced.
Alongside the trade agreement, the EU and Japan are also negotiating a Strategic Partnership Agreement that would reflect Japan's position as a key strategic partner of the EU in Asia and demonstrates the partners' joint commitment to open and rules-based trade as well as to the principles of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
