Writer Consultant: Japan and Sides I

writer consultant: Unveiling a negotiating objectives paper for the bilateral talks in May, International Trade Secretary Liz Truss said, Both sides are committed to an ambitious timeline to secure a deal that goes even further than the EPA especially in digital and data, referring to the Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and Japan, according to The Japan Times. Bill Emmott, chairman of The Japan Society in Britain and a writer and consultant on international affairs, said, I think that ultimately it will be quite easy to get a deal between Japan and the U.K. because I think there is goodwill on both sides and I don't think the gaps are too huge. Virtual meetings on a new free trade agreement between the U.K. and Japan will begin shortly, but little of substance may be achieved due to the lack of progress on the key talks in Brussels, which will bear heavily on minds in Tokyo. ; And even when negotiators from the U.K. and Japan start discussions on the terms of a new trade deal, the interests of food producers and powerful domestic lobbies may make getting a deal harder than initially envisaged, observers claim. But he believes neither side will push ahead substantially until the terms of the new trading arrangement between the U.K. and the EU are clearer. The talks between the U.K. and the EU are currently in a fragile state, with some observers expecting negotiations to be extended into next year. This is because Japan has many manufacturing and services subsidiaries that rely on easy access into the EU from their British base. (news.financializer.com). As reported in the news.
