Over the past year the priority for the European Commission with regards to trade and sustainability development (TSD) has been the implementation of the 15-point action plan that was published on 26 of February 2018. The overall objective of this action plan is to ensure more effective implementation and enforcement of the TSD chapters of the EU trade agreements. For this, the 15 concrete points for action that have been identified were grouped under four broad fields of work, namely: (1) working together (with EU Member States, the European Parliament and international organisations); (2) enabling civil society, including the social partners, to play their role in implementation; (3) delivering , and (4) communication and transparency. The aim of this meeting is to give an account of the progress made so far highlighting the main initiatives that have been undertaken in this regard.

Another important component of the values agenda of the EU’s trade policy is the Generalised System of Preferences for developing economies. The meeting will also offer on update on the enhanced engagement with Cambodia and Myanmar in this context.
