Commission sets up advisory group on EU trade agreements

The Commission announced today the composition of the advisory group on EU trade agreements. The creation of the group is one of the elements aiming to increase transparency and inclusiveness in EU trade policy to which the Commission committed at the time of the 2017 State of the Union address.

Through this group the Commission will benefit from the perspectives and insights of a wide and balanced group of stakeholders, ranging from trade unions, employers organisations, consumer groups and other non-governmental organisations.

The nomination of 28 experts has been based on an open call for applications and a clear set of criteria. The list is now available online. The first meeting of the group will take place in early February.

More information about the group.
