A Workshop of the CoR Commission for Economic Policy and EUROCHAMBRES will be held on 18 November on 'Making EU Trade Agreements work to the benefit of businesses and regions: Challenges and Opportunities at national, regional and local level'.
The workshop will be an opportunity to look into what hurdles are encountered in the member states, regions, and among the SME community in relation to implementation of FTAs and the challenges for a more effective implementation. In light of the announced focus of the upcoming Commission on improving implementation of trade agreements, the workshop will also look into the role that each level of government could play in that regard. After the presentation of the main findings of the CoR - EUROCHAMBRES survey on the implementation of FTAs and the EPRS analysis on Implementation of CETA, a panel debate will focus on the possible avenues for improving the uptake of existing EU trade agreements by SMEs in all EU member states and regions and thus for making trade and globalisation work as an engine for sustainable growth, employment and industrial renewal.
