The purpose of this meeting is to present the European Commission’s second Annual Report on the implementation of EU trade agreements published on 31 October 2018. The report was accompanied by a Staff Working Document, which has details on each individual agreement.

The report covers 35 agreements with 62 countries and regions. It shows that EU free trade agreements continue to deliver, boosting trades and contributing to growing EU exports. With some 70 trade agreements spanning five continents, the EU now has the largest web of trade agreements in the world. The growing list of strategic trade deals provides EU businesses with preferential access to key foreign markets, and gives them a competitive advantage compared to exporters from other countries. The agreements have again helped to remove a number of trade barriers. The more modern agreements all include binding rules on certain labour standards and environmental protection, the application of which the Commission monitors very closely. We are looking forward to an open exchange of views with you about the state of play on FTA implementation and possibilities to further improve it.

• The report can be consulted online and in all Community languages.

• The fact sheet can be consulted also online here.

• The Staff Working Document is available in English
