To what extent can a progressive trade policy in itself be part of the answer to the backlash against globalisation? How can a Europe that protects, best deal with those that globalisation has left behind? How can we best deal with new challenges such as ‘alternative facts’? And as we head towards the third decade of the century, where should our priorities for trade policy lie?
These are the sort of issues that will be discussed at this year’s European Trade Policy Day. The conference will be based on a series of discussions with leading businessmen and women, stakeholders, experts and journalists.
The conference is part of the Commission’s commitment to step up its efforts to promote a deeper dialogue with civil society at large. It will enable Commissioner Malmström and her colleagues to have an open and frank discussion with civil society about EU trade policy and the challenges ahead.
