Trade Relations; Investment and Regulatory Cooperation; Financial Services, Accounting and Taxation

The BRT's current Working Party 1 (WP1) addresses "Trade Relations; Investment and Regulatory Cooperation; Financial Services, Accounting and Taxation" issues and prepares recommendations to the Government of Japan and to the EU Authorities on these topics.

WP1's EU-side is led by European Business Council (EBC) in Japan, supported by BUSINESSEUROPE. NISSAN MOTOR Co., Ltd., supported by GISPRI, leads its Japan-side. It was created in time for the 2016 annual meeting by the merger of two working parties - one focussing on Trade Relations; Investment and Regulatory Cooperation and the other one focussing on Financial Services, Accounting and Taxation issues. Over the years the exact title of the working parties have evolved to reflect their changing remit.

Since 2009, the BRT has released several sets of Recommendations in these areas:
