Commissioner Malmström calls for more ambition in negotiation for open trade in services (TiSA)

Today EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström chaired a meeting in Paris with 22 fellow ministers involved in the negotiations for a Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).

Participants discussed the recently exchanged revised offers and the general progress towards conclusion of that new agreement on trade in services.

"Today's meeting shows that we may not be far from reaching an agreement on TiSA by the end of this year. The recent revised offers and the work done so far represent real improvement, but we certainly still need more ambition. The EU is ready to go an additional mile but everyone needs to join if we want to achieve an agreement able to shape the global economy of the 21st century."
