EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement - EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (resolution) - EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement - EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement (resolution) - Adequacy of the protection of personal data afforded by Japan (debate)

  Jan Zahradil, on behalf of the ECR Group. – Madam President, Japan is the world’s third—largest economy, with near—record employment, solid economic growth, perspectives linked to external demand, and an ambitious international trade agenda. It is our strategic partner, our G20 colleague and a hugely important ally on the global stage on various fronts, starting with climate change, the sustainable development goals and WTO reform and defence of rules—based international trade.

We now have a unique opportunity to finalise the ratification process and get the deal approved during this parliamentary term so that it can enter into force as soon as possible. The Commission has redoubled its efforts, the Austrian and also the upcoming Romanian Presidencies are committed to it, and we have to do our best to complete the consent procedure. We have to respect Japan and honour our commitments as soon as possible.
