15-10-2015

The Foreign Trade Association (FTA) highly welcomes the long-awaited new EU Trade Policy Strategy presented by Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström, and calls for its prompt implementation.

We are very satisfied that the Commission is proposing in such clear manner an effective trade policy tackling today’s business realities, the promotion of sustainability values and one of the most ambitious negotiation programmes ever put on the table”, said Christian Ewert, FTA Director General. “We are pleased to see that the key objectives correspond – to a large extent – to the suggestions put forward by FTA in two recent strategic manifestos, the FTA Road Map and the Statement to the European Commission. All in all, it clearly demonstrates our shared vision of free trade and sustainable supply chains; FTA will continue to be a valuable partner while working towards this goal”.
