Japan-Mongolia EPA Entered into force on Jun. 7, 2016

Outline

At the Japan-Mongolia Summit Meeting in March 2012, the leaders of both countries decided to commence EPA negotiations. Japan and Mongolia held seven formal meetings from June 2012 to June 2014, completed the negotiations in July 2014, and signed the EPA in February 2015, which was brought into force on June 7, 2016.
As a result of the negotiations, the ratio of tariff-free goods exported from Japan to Mongolia, which was below 1% before entry into force of this agreement, will dramatically increase to 96% within 10 years. In particular, the tariffs on most passenger cars were eliminated immediately. In addition to eliminating tariffs, the EPA will improve the investment climate for energy and mineral resources and market access for foreign affiliated companies in the retail and wholesale service sectors, and will establish high level rules on trade and investment in a wide range of fields including e-commerce and intellectual property.
