EU-Japan Trade Deal negotiated! Finally!

A rare occurrence. The EU is doing something right.
I hope for custom free imports and less expensive trading with Japan. That would be great!

The EU has finalised negotiations for a trade agreement with Japan.
EU firms already export over €58bn in goods and €28bn in services to Japan every year.
But European firms face trade barriers when exporting to Japan which make it hard for them to compete.
The trade agreement with Japan will:

remove these barriers
help us shape global trade rules in line with our high standards and shared values
send a powerful signal that two of the world's biggest economies reject protectionism.
