  • Monday, 16th July 2018: EU-Japan Abkommen steht vor der Unterzeichnung
    Die Fronten im drohenden Handelskrieg zwischen der USA und seinen wichtigsten Handelspartnern in Amerika, Europa und Asien verschärfen sich. Durch den Fokus auf die möglichen negativen wirtschaftlichen Konsequenzen der US-Zollpolitik bleiben die Verhandlungsfortschritte und erfolgreichen Abschlüsse von Freihandelsabkommen der EU fast unbemerkt; so auch das Wirtschaftspartnerschaftsabkommen zwischen der EU und Japan, das morgen (17. Juli) in Tokyo unterzeichnet wird.
