Trade agreements and European competitiveness

Trade agreements can make a major contribution to European competitiveness by

  • supporting the EU's de-risking strategy through diversification of imports and exports,
  • contributing to the modernisation of trading rules in key areas like climate change and digitalisation, and
  • supporting the EU's engagement with countries around the world, making it a true global player.

This is the main message stemming from the panel discussion organised today by the Women in Trade Network Brussels & BusinessEurope, with Sabine Weyand, Director General of European Commission DG Trade, and Luisa Santos, BusinessEurope Deputy Director General.
