Ja­pan signs health agree­ment with Den­mark

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Regulatory News -

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.
