Speech: Commissioner Malmström spoke about value-based trade in Paris

Today Commissioner Cecilia Malmström addressed the Youth and Leaders Summit – a unique event where youth and current leaders discuss the big issues our societies face today. It is organised by the Paris School of International Affairs at Sciences Po. The Commissioner discussed inequality, European values and EU trade as a formidable instrument for making an impact on the world.

“Trade is, if used in the right way, a formidable tool for growth and can help the world develop sustainably and inclusively”, Commissioner Malmström said. Read the Commissioner’s full speech here.
