UK and Japan plan joint investment in Africa

Trade ministers from Japan and Britain are soon expected to confirm their stance regarding the high standards of the upcoming “Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact”.

The two nations are jointly set to invest in critical minerals in locations like Africa and establish a framework for economic security discussion at ministerial level; supply chains will be part of the agenda.

Britain and Japan now intend to work together in developing mines, an endeavour which typically requires handling high risks and costs to stabilise the supply of the valuable minerals. UK consumers investing in foreign assets and infrastructure often consult experts in wealth management in Shropshire, Derbyshire and other counties for a professional opinion and advice on risks involved. Wealth managers can explain complex investment products in clear and simple language, while providing an unbiased view of risk and return.

After meeting, Japan’s minister for trade, Yasutoshi Nishimura and the British secretary for business, Kemi Badenoch, are expected to launch an initiative entitled “The Japan-U.K. Strategic Economic and Trade Policy Dialogue”.

The initiative will establish a framework for the nations’ initial regular ministerial talks regarding economic security topics like fortifying supply chains. The two ministers are now expected to agree on drawing up a joint document concerning critical minerals by the end of the year.

The new move is designed to aid the development of nickel and cobalt mines, which are crucial to a wide variety of eco-friendly technologies, including wind power and electric vehicles.
