EU, Japan to improve data flow collaboration

In today’s globalised economy, cross-border data flow is fundamental to daily operations in nearly every sector and key to a functional global digital economy.

At an event, hosted by the Japan Business Council in Europe (JBCE) and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation at CeBIT in the German city of Hannover, keynote speakers Kiyoshi Mori of Japan’s ministry for economy, trade and industry (METI), and Andreas Goerdeler of the German federal ministry for economic affairs and energy (BMWi), made the case that digital trade supports growth in business and society.

The session showcased the close EU-Japan relationship and the need for a fair and open framework for global digital trade.
