  16. Policy : Consultation note on a renewed trade policy for a stronger Europe
    • Abstract: the European Commission is launching a review of the EU’s trade and investment policy. Two key objectives are driving this process. First, to assess how trade policy can contribute to a swift and sustainable socio-economic recovery, reinforcing competitiveness in the post-Covid 19 environment, addressing the challenges the EU will face, and helping to promote our values and standards. Second, to see how trade policy can help build a stronger EU based on a model of “Open Strategic Autonomy” ̶ reaping the benefits of openness for our businesses, workers and consumers, while protecting them from unfair practices and building up our resilience to be better equipped for future challenges.

  17. Sustainability Impact Assessment (SIA) : Executive summary in EN - May 2019
    • Abstract: When it entered into force in 2003, the original EU-Chile Association Agreement was a path-breaking agreement, providing for deep liberalisation of goods trade, WTO-plus rules in areas such as sanitary and phytosanitary standards, broad liberalisation commitments on trade in services and foreign direct investment, commitments on government procurement and intellectual property, including mutual protection of geographical indications, trade facilitation, and innovative institutional provisions. Evaluations of the impact of the original Agreement suggest that it worked powerfully to support bilateral trade at a time when Chile was highly active in entering into FTAs with other parties, and thus avoided putting EU suppliers at a competitive disadvantage in the Chilean market; EU services exporters benefited in particular. However, with the passage of time and the evolution of the EU’s FTA approach, the original Agreement now lags in important areas and still leaves some room for liberalisation in traditional areas. Therefore, Chile and the EU agreed to enter into negotiations for a modernisation of the Agreement. These negotiations started in November 2017 and are currently ongoing. 2. This is the final report for the Trade Sustainability Impact Assessment (SIA) in support of the negotiations to modernise the trade pillar of the existing EU-Chile Association Agreement. The report presents findings of the potential economic, social, human rights and environmental impacts (the four “sustainability pillars”) stemming from provisions in the modernised Agreement or being a consequence of removing or reducing remaining barriers to bilateral trade and investment between the EU and Chile. The report also provides a number of recommendations, derived from the analysis, on issues to be incorporated into the modernised Agreement and mitigating measures. Furthermore, it describes the methodology used and, in a separate appendix, a summary of the consultation activities and contributions received from stakeholders in Chile and the EU. The research for the report was undertaken by a team of researchers from BKP Development Research & Consulting and the Catholic University of Valparaiso’s Centro Vincular under a contract with the European Commission’s DG Trade.
