DJW "Asa no Kai" with Gerhard Wiesheu, Chairman, DJW (Willich, 15.12.2015)
Nov 17, 2015
2015 has been a lively year for German-Japanese business relations: Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Japan before welcoming all G7 representatives to Germany, delegations of Japanese SMEs travelled to Germany on initiative of Prime Minister Shinzō Abe and a new tax agreement for the avoidance of double taxation has been agreed on. Moreover, after the successful conclusion of the TPP negotiations, the chances for a successful conclusion of the EU-Japan Free Trade Agreement have probably improved as well. Nevertheless, there are a lot of challenges in 2016 for both countries. Economic growth in Japan disappointed this year with weak consumption spending and weak export growth. What can Japan do to revitalize growth? In Germany, there are worries about the slowdown in emerging economies and about the refugee crisis. How will Germany cope with this challenges and what is the outlook for the German economy?
