A trade strategy fit for the 21st century

"Agreements with key trading partners like Canada, Japan and Mercosur have been concluded and important legislation has been adopted. We congratulate the outgoing Commission for the impressive progress achieved", Director General Markus J. Beyrer said at the BusinessEurope event "A trade strategy fit for the 21st century" on 8 July in Brussels. The aim was to promote a discussion on the achievements under the current trade policy of the EU and the priorities that should be set for the future, under the new European Commission and European Parliament. The EU Commissioner for Trade, Cecilia Malmström, delivered a keynote speech and participated in a panel debate. "The new Commission will have to operate in a complex and challenging environment in global trade. Businesses and other civil society stakeholders have an important task to help identify priorities for an effective EU trade policy and we stand ready to contribute", Beyrer stated. - Photos
