1. Japan Trade Deal

Expand arrow_drop_down
  • What: Explainer on what is in the deal and how it will affect businesses trading from the UK into Japan and those importing from Japan.
  • Who: UKTPO already published a paper and are monitoring the deal. Institute for Gov could contribute too. I couldn’t see content already available on either site but may have missed it. Action: LF please could you have a look? Could this be something Liam or Anna J does an explainer video on? It would need to be 30 seconds max. Thoughts? LS: Suggest we set up a sharing agreement to promote UKTPO reports.
