A Note on Political EU-Japan Relations and Economic Ties: Efforts through Cooperation Programs


Author Info

  • Ralf Bebenroth

    (Kobe University)


On October 1st 2005, the EU Institute Japan, Kansai (EUIJ Kansai) officially opened its doors with a symposium at Kobe University. High ranking EU officials came to celebrate a strengthening relationship between EU and Western Japan. In recent years, several initiatives between the EU and Japan have been introduced and it is apparent that a lot of effort is being made by politicians from both sides to improve reciprocal economic ties. This paper sheds some light on the status quo on political efforts and concludes that even if the economic ties are still weak, political efforts have increased to a large extend.
