The world has held serious concern about possible resurgence of trade protectionism since the Brexit process started and Mr. Trump came into the White House. The Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement in July 2017 is a statement for free trade. The significance of the Agreement is discussed in connection with economic reform in Japan under Abenomics particularly in agriculture and other key sectors and on-going negotiations over other mega-FTAs in East Asia.
Fukunari Kimura is Professor of Faculty of Economics, Keio University and Chief Economist, Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). He serves as a co-editor of the Journal of the Japanese and International Economies.
He received his Ph.D. in Economics from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
