The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations: In 1945, soon after the end of the Second World War, nations worldwide took the commitment to work together for peace. At around the same time years, European countries chose to follow the same path with the European Union.
The EU Delegation will organise a series of nine online webinars in different policy areas ranging from green recovery to trade to public health, bringing together EU and Japanese experts to discuss the impact, policy response and EU-Japan cooperation regarding COVID-19.
