UK and Japan sign Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement

Kosuke Takahashi, Tokyo - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
27 January 2017

The UK and Japan signed on 26 January an Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA) to facilitate closer bilateral defence logistics support and co-operation during activities such as combined exercises, training, peacekeeping operations, and humanitarian aid and disaster relief missions, according to statements issued by the UK and Japanese governments.

"The agreement includes practical arrangements that will allow both countries' [armed] forces to share equipment, facilities, and services in a simpler and more efficient way. It covers the exchange of supplies and services, removing the need for individual agreements on a case by case basis," said the UK foreign ministry in a press release.

Dear my friends,

How are you? I hope you all are keeping very well.

I just wanted to tell you that last Friday I officially quit Reuters in Tokyo. I really enjoyed my 10-month tenure at Reuters and I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people out there.
