Commissioner Phil Hogan will be visiting Japan in May 2019, accompanied by a business delegation of senior representatives from the European agri-food sector. The purpose of this visit is to facilitate European agricultural food and beverage exports to benefit from the favourable outcome of the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, which entered into force on 1 February 2019.

The objective of the business delegation visit is to give the opportunity to the accompanying European producers’ representatives to meet potential partners from the local agri-food sector. The programme of activities for the business delegates will include seminars on the characteristics of the local market and consumer trends, retail and site visits, and networking opportunities.
