Meeting details

  • Date: 16/11/2017, 15:00 - 16:30 (registration closed)

The purpose of this meeting is to debrief civil society organisations on the status of the EU-Mexico trade negotiations and to exchange views on the topic.

The EU-Mexico Global Agreement, which entered into force in 2000, covers political dialogue, cooperation and trade relations. It includes a trade liberalisation component, the ‘EU-Mexico Free Trade Agreement (FTA)’ covering trade in goods and partially trade in services. However, since the EU-Mexico FTA entered into force, there have been substantial economic changes in the EU and in Mexico. There have also been significant trade policy developments in the world and both sides have concluded comprehensive agreements with other partners which go well beyond the provisions of the EU-Mexico FTA.

The EU and Mexico launched the negotiations for modernising the existing Agreement on 25 May 2016. The sixth round for modernising the trade part will take place in Mexico City between 27 November and 1 December 2017.

During this event, the EU Chief Negotiators will present the state of play of the EU-Mexico negotiations for modernising the trade as well as the political parts of the EU-Mexico Global Agreement.

Lead Participants
Ms Helena Konig, Director for Asia and Latin America, Directorate-General for Trade, European Commission - EU Chief Negotiator for Trade-related matters
Ms Edita Hrda, EEAS Managing Director for the Americas, European External Action Service - EU Chief Negotiator

Moderator
Mrs Adeline Hinderer, Deputy Head of Unit; Information, Communication and Civil Society, Directorate-General for Trade
