Japan, Germany to lead a new economic zone

Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe held a summit meeting and other events with Angela Merkel, Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, at the Prime Minister’s Office, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press office of the Prime Minister of Japan.

“The Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between Japan and the European Union (EU) entered into force three days ago. Federal Chancellor Merkel’s visit to Japan at this opportune time sends out a strong message that Japan and Germany will lead this new economic zone. I hope you will make use of the EPA to further expand the business exchanges you have fostered thus far, ranging from food to manufacturing industries and from large to local, small- and medium-sized enterprises. The Government of Japan will support this by leveraging relevant organizations to the greatest extent, including the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO)”, Shinzo Abe said.

“At the summit meeting Federal Chancellor Merkel and I shared the view on strengthening collaboration between Germany, which advances Industry 4.0, and Japan, which advances Society 5.0”, the head of government added.

According to Shinzo Abe, Japan and Germany have a tradition of attaching importance to primarily manufacturing as well as medium-sized and small-scale enterprises.

“We will lead the creation of a prosperous and clean future society by integrating eco-towns and state-of-the-art technologies, such as autonomous driving, artificial intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT). This will also be a key topic at the G20 Osaka Summit”, Shinzo Abe said.
