This report provides an overview of trade relations between the EU and Japan in 2016. The report begins by analysing Japanese trade with the EU as a whole and then provides a country-by-country analysis of export trade between Japan and individual EU Member States. The report focuses primarily on the balance of trade between Japan, the EU and its constituent Member States, and also provides a breakdown of goods traded between Japan and EU by category (i.e. chemicals, manufactured goods, food and livestock, etc.) in each case. It also includes some information about bilateral agreements that have been signed in 2016 between each Member State and Japan.
