EU, Japan agree to free-trade deal

The European Union and Japan have formally agreed to an outline free-trade deal.     
     
The agreement paves the way for trading in goods without tariff barriers between two of the world's biggest economic areas.
     
However, few specific details are known and a full, workable agreement may take some time.
     
Two of the most important sectors are Japanese cars and, for Europe, EU farming goods into Japan.
