JBCE CONFERENCE “EU-JAPAN COOPERATION IN THE DIGITAL AGE: OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRANSFORMING SOCIETIES”

The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) that came into force on 1 February 2019 creates the largest free trade area in the world, and brings countless benefits for European and Japanese societies and economies. Digital technologies and data flows, analysis and use (i.e. digital economy) are set to play a crucial role to maximize the benefits.
