The Commission will present the development of EU approach to rules of origin in EU Free Trade Agreements towards simpler and coherent rules of origin as well as modernised origin procedures.

In addition, the Commission will give an update on the implementation of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) screening regulation adopted on 19 March 2019. The Regulation aims to create a cooperation mechanism for Member States and the Commission to exchange information and raise concerns in cases where investments from non-EU countries may affect security or public order.

The purpose of this meeting is to inform and exchange views with civil society on these topics.
