The European Union is seeking closer cooperation with Japan on key technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and semiconductors as part of its strategy to reduce dependence on China. EU Commissioner Thierry Breton is meeting with the Japanese government to discuss an EU-Japan Digital Partnership Council, focusing on sectors such as quantum computing and AI. The move is part of the EU's plan to "de-risk" from China and deepen ties with technology allies.
