Press Release: European retailers and importers welcome G20 leaders' declaration

07-09-2013

The FTA has welcomed the 6 September G20 leaders' declaration reaffirming the significance of the multilateral trading system as a source of growth and development. The FTA believes that trade agreements have the largest impact if they cover as many dimensions of global value chains as possible. FTA members source from all over the world and are consequently very much affected by protectionist policies and technical barriers to trade when doing import and export business. FTA now asks WTO members to show flexibility and to bridge gaps in order to arrive at a successful outcome of the Bali WTO Ministerial meeting in December.
