The Japanese government on Friday said it welcomed the post-Brexit free trade agreement finally made between Britain and the European Union, before the year-end deadline and with a no-deal Brexit forestalled.

“The government welcomes the fact that issues such as the introduction of tariffs between the EU and UK have been averted that could have had a serious impact on the international economy,” said Japan’s Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi in a statement on the matter.

“Japan will closely monitor the implementation of the agreement and continue to share information and provide support to Japanese businesses based in the United Kingdom and continental Europe to maintain their smooth operations,” Motegi added.

Both sides in Europe agreed to ensure that trade in goods without tariffs and quotas will continue even after Britain’s exit from the single currency bloc on Dec. 31.
