The UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) was signed by the Secretary of State for International Trade and the Japanese Foreign Minister in Tokyo on 23 October.  The agreement is the UK’s first to be completed as an independent trading nation.

Today I am publishing our assessment of the CEPA on our Trade Policy webpages:

The report provides commentary and analysis on the potential short and long-term impacts of the CEPA on Wales’ economy.  I hope the Wales-focused analysis and information in the report will aid scrutiny of the agreement by Members of the Senedd, business and citizens.
