Although the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) was regarded as one of the essential pillars of economic reform under the Abe Administration 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 Fukunari Kimura will share his knowledge with us and the moderator will be Jakob Roland Munch, professor at the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen .
