ECIPE Lunch Seminar: Whither the Modernisation of Trade Defence Instruments?
The European Union is in the process of revising its trade defence policy. A proposal from the European Commission is now working its way through the European Parliament while several Member States have expressed dissatisfaction with the proposal. The package of reforms suggest a couple of discreet reforms in technical aspects of trade defence policy, but they may have a strong impact on policy and business that are – in one way or the other – affected by trade defence actions. Will these reforms improve Europe’s trade defence policy?
You are cordially invited to a lunch seminar with MEP Christofer Fjellner, the Rapporteur in the European Parliament for the proposals to reform trade defence instruments. The presentation by MEP Fjellner will be followed by comments from Edwin Vermulst, Founding Partner at VVGB Advocaten and an expert on trade defence policy, Fredrik Erixon, Director at ECIPE and Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director at ECIPE.
