TL;DR

The European Union is holding a summit with Japan in Brussels later today. The EU will be represented by Donald Tusk President of the European Commission. 99% of Japanese imports and 97% of European Union imports will have their tariffs scrapped under the terms of the EU Japan trade deal.

And 76 percent of respondents in Germany said they considered EU membership a good thing
