What Brexit Means for Japan

As Brexit day on March 29th rapidly approaches, Japanese companies based in the UK have started to prepare for a no-deal scenario. Honda has recently announced the closure of its UK production line for four-wheeled vehicles by 2021 (though it stated that Brexit was not the reason), and other companies such as Sony, Panasonic, and Hitachi have announced plans to move their European headquarters out of the UK.

The trend of shifting some operations out of the UK seems to be gaining momentum among Japanese companies, which may end up having a long-term effect on UK-Japan commercial relations. In this seminar, Professor Endo of Hokkaido University will analyse the impact of Brexit on UK-Japan relations, as well as on EU-Japan relations. In addition, Grant Lewis of Daiwa Capital Markets Europe Ltd will explain the economic impact and influence of Brexit from a UK perspective.

Date: 28 March 2019, 6.00pm – 8.00pm
Venue: Daiwa Foundation, 13 – 14 Cornwall Terrace, London NW1 4QP. Nearest tube: Baker Street
