Objective of the consultation

At the 19th Japan-EU Summit of 28 April 2010, the EU and Japan decided to establish a joint High Level Group (HLG) to identify options for strengthening all aspects of Japan-EU relations – including trade and economic aspects.

The European Commission is launching a broad public consultation to gather views from relevant stakeholders regarding the future EU-Japan trade and economic relationship, ahead of the next Summit which will be held in spring 2011. The consultation is open to all stakeholders within the EU and in third countries.

The Commission services will prepare a report on the Consultation which will be published on the Directorate General for Trade website. All contributions will be published in a document attached to the report, to the exception of those from respondents who indicate that they do not wish their contribution to be made public

We welcome your input and comments on the questionnaire, by Wednesday 5 November 2010 at the latest. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
