The European Union and Japan face unprecedented economic and social challenges such as an ageing and declining population, budgetary constraints, intense international competition, global warming and the related need to address question of energy mix and energy supply.

In addressing the challenges, the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission and the City Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan hereby decide to establish a dialogue on the territorial implications, especially with regard to urban development and urban policy. The dialogue will promote greater knowledge and mutual understanding through exchanges of information and a sharing of experiences on urban policy. It will establish the communication channels necessary for a strong policy dialogue in this field.
