Japan, Britain to Collaborate on Cutting-Edge Technologies

   London, Jan. 9 (Jiji Press)--Japan and Britain will invest 30 million pounds together on a new program to develop cutting-edge technologies as part of an effort to forge a new alliance to shape the 21st century, the British government said Wednesday.
   Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his British counterpart, Theresa May, will agree on the program at their meeting in London on Thursday, the British government said.
   "Our relationship with Japan is stronger than ever, and this visit will enhance cooperation in a wide range of areas," May said in a statement.
   The program calls on researchers and industry experts from both countries to work together on projects including designing robotic systems, creating new drugs and developing environment-friendly transport and energy storing systems.
   At their meeting, Abe and May will discuss the possibility of the two countries concluding a bilateral trade deal, based on the economic partnership agreement between Japan and the European Union, after Britain's planned exit from the EU, according to the British government.
