Japan signs health agreement with Denmark
The health minister at Denmark, Ellen Trane Nørby, has recently signed an agreement with the Japanese deputy minister for health, work and welfare, Mizhho Onuma, on her visit to Tokyo.
The agreement will pave the way for increased co-operation between the two countries in the health sphere and lead to regular meetings so that expertise and experience can be exchanged.
According to the Foreign Ministry, the forthcoming free trade agreement between the EU and Japan will also increase Danish exports by up to 70 per cent. Japan is the world’s second-largest market for medicines, and these topped the list of Danish exports to Japan in 2016. The Japanese market for health-related products is expected to have grown by 50 per cent by 2025.
