EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström was a key draw for an audience of over 150 trade representatives at a conference which has been reviewed in the latest edition of FTA's Trade Perspectives, a quarterly newsletter sharing the association's key activities. The event took place in Brussels on 5 March 2015 and was held jointly by FTA and EuroCommerce. It tackled the topic of Unleashing the Potential of EU Trade Policy: Time for Action which refers to the urgent need for the EU Commission to overhaul certain aspects of its legal framework to maximise the ability of businesses to boost Europe’s economy.

This event comes at a crucial time of transformation, as the new EU Commission prepares its trade strategy for the coming term. FTA aims to ensure Europe takes into account the need for free and sustainable trade to enhance economic growth and social wellbeing and will continue to engage at the highest level to positively influence developments in this area.
