The European Commission aims to release an updated strategy for the European Union’s trade policy in autumn 2015. The strategy will define the trade policy agenda for the next five years and will focus on how to achieve the goals of the European Union's trade policy – creating growth and jobs in Europe, promoting sustainable development around the world, strengthening ties with important trading partners.

To ensure transparency and dialogue, the European Commission will consult EU Member States, the European Parliament and the broad range of organisations with an interest in trade policy.

The purpose of this meeting is to exchange views with civil society on the preparation of a new trade and investment strategy for jobs and growth at a technical level.
