DJW "Asa no Kai" / DJW「朝の会」with Tamotsu Otani, former President of Arakawa Europe GmbH, Gerhard Wiesheu, Chairman, Japanese-German Business Association (DJW) / Partner, Metzler Bank (Osaka, 26.04.2017)

It was our great pleasure having welcomed 35 participants to the premiere of our "Asa no Kai" in Japan and in Osaka.

The topic we chose was BREXIT and its consequences for our economies: Breathlessly, the world anticipates various major changes from the shift of politics announced by American President Donald Trump. At the same time, the British Parliament passed the BREXIT bill paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the European Union. Prime Minister May pursues a “hard” BREXIT which includes giving up full access to the single market and full access of the customs union along with the EU. The consequences for Great Britain are expected to severely influence its economic future; those political developments will without doubt affect German and Japanese companies with relation to UK, continental Europe and Asia as well.

The speakers shed light on questions such as what effects those developments would have on economic developments in the EU and Japan? What consequences will be drawn by companies based in the UK or with European headquarters in London including Japanese companies?
