The UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement locks in the benefits of the EU-Japan deal, and goes even further in a number of areas, including;
Cutting-edge digital & data provisions,
Improved market access for UK financial services,
More generous rules of origin provisions for some goods, and
Opening the door for more British products to be protected in Japan by geographical indications.
We will publish a parliamentary report for the UK-Japan agreement prior to ratification, clearly highlighting areas where there are specific material differences between the EU Economic Partnership Agreement and this deal.
