Bruegel · How can the EU and Japan boost collaboration and multilateralism around the globe?

 

The pandemic has reminded us of the great paradox of our time: the necessity for cooperation in tackling collective challenges and yet, the fragility of the global system. The European Union and Japan share a common understanding of this situation and a political willingness to remedy it.

During this online conference speakers from Europe and Japan shared their perspectives on how the two partners can work together, jointly with other like-minded countries, to improve global collaboration and multilateralism in areas such as health, climate, and trade.

This event is organised in cooperation with Kobe University Graduate school of economics.

Memo to the European Commissioner for Financial Services Policy

The Commissioner for Financial Services Policy should define and promote a vision for a sustainable global financial regulatory and supervisory order, based on the lessons from the previous major international financial crisis in 2007-09 and its aftermath. As a member of President Ursula von der Leyen’s “geopolitical Commission,” the Commissioner should lead in setting the international agenda and build global credibility by driving the corresponding “domestic” (ie EU) reforms at home. This memo focuses on the international aspects.
