The purpose of this meeting is to debrief  civil society organisations on the status of the EU-Mexico trade negotiations and to exchange views on the topic.

The EU-Mexico Global Agreement, which entered into force in 2000, covers political dialogue, cooperation and trade relations. It includes a trade liberalisation component, the ‘EU-Mexico Free Trade Agreement (FTA)’ covering trade in goods and partially trade in services. However, since the EU-Mexico FTA entered into force, there have been substantial economic changes in the EU and in Mexico. There have also been significant trade policy developments in the world and both sides have concluded comprehensive agreements with other partners which go well beyond the provisions of the EU-Mexico FTA.

In this context, the EU and Mexico decided to launch the negotiations for modernising the existing Agreement on 25 May 2016. The first round of negotiations took place on 13-14 June 2016 in Brussels; the second round in November in Mexico City. The third round of negotiations will take place in Brussels from 3 to 7 April 2017.
