Meeting details

  • Date: 20/10/2015, 15:00 - 16:30 (registration closed)
  • Location: Room AB-0A, Albert Borschette building, Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels
  • Registration closes on : 15/10/2015 12:00

The meeting is part of an ongoing process of Civil Society Dialogue (CSD) on EU trade policy.

It follows the Commission's communication proposing a new trade and investment strategy for the European Union. The strategy aims to adapt trade policy to the economic reality of a deeply interconnected world economy. It also seeks to open up negotiations to more public scrutiny and to ensure that EU trade policy is in line with fundamental values.

Participants are invited to share their views on the Commission's ideas and on how best to implement them.

Further information on the new trade strategy is available here. The discussion will be the third in a series on the way forward for trade policy under the Civil Society Dialogue following meetings in April and May. The Commission also held a major conference on the topic – "European Trade Policy Day" in June. 

The meeting will be chaired by Mr Peter Sandler, Director for Resources, Information and Policy Coordination at the Directorate-General for Trade.

Due to increased security measures implemented by the European Commission from 1 June 2015, participants will receive in the confirmation email a link to a form in which they will be requested to introduce their ID number together with its validity date, their nationality and date of birth. Those participants who have not provided this information 48 hours before the meeting takes place will NOT be able to access the venue. No late registrations will be accepted.

We would be grateful if participants could arrive 15/20 minutes in advance. Please bring with you the confirmation email received when you registered for the meeting and an ID card as they will be requested by the security staff at the entrance of the Borschette Centre. A reception desk will be set up at the entrance of the meeting room, where you will receive an identification badge.
