Posted: 16th September 2020
Commenting on the announcement by the UK Government that the UK and Japan have secured a free trade agreement, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said:
“This is great news that we finally have a free Trade Deal with Japan. It is an important market for many of our key Scottish products and services. We need to ensure that Scottish businesses are prepared and supported to access the opportunities this market will provide for both existing and new exporters.

“Our Chamber Network in Scotland and in Japan look forward to working with our governments and business communities to move this forward on the ground where it matters.

“Let us hope that this success can be mirrored in the current negotiations to secure a Free Trade deal with our European partners.’’
