"Japan's Trade Strategy in a New Global Trading Environment"
Protectionist sentiment has been growing in many parts of the world. In the US, Mr. Donald Trump, new President, declared that the US withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), while the UK has decided to exit from the European Union (EU). TPP has been Japan’s most important trade policy as the TPP is expected to contribute to Japan’s economic recovery and economic growth of the Asia-Pacific region by liberalizing trade and investment policies and setting new economic rules. Japan has to rethink its trade strategy in a new global trading environment.
