----------------------
Since December 2019, European Green Deal was presented by the European Union together with the goal to become the world’s first climate neutral continent by 2050, the relationship between the EU and Japan took a new, important turn. Japan, as one of the leading countries in Pacific region, offers a great potential to work closely with the EU in dealing with climate change, committing to low-carbon transition, renewable energy and green transformation in terms of financing and development. How will the Covid-19 pandemic influence potential climate strategy? And what are the future steps for the EU and Japan to take the lead?
