The Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism is pleased to announce that EU Commissioner for Trade, Mr. Karel De Gucht, will be the keynote speaker at a Trade Event that will take place on 04.09.2014 at Filoxenia Conference Centre.
The Commissioner is expected to provide an overall analysis of EU’s Trade Policy, such as the negotiations undertaken by the EU for Free Trade Agreements, the Doha multilateral negotiations, as well as the plurilateral negotiations for a Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). Particular emphasis will be given to SMEs and the opportunities presented for them.
The Trade Event is of interest to enterprises and business associations, as well as to non-governmental organisations and academic institutions. The objectives will be, first, to update on the current developments and how these can affect Cyprus enterprises and, second, to stimulate interest on EU’s Trade Policy and to encourage greater involvement by the business world.
Further information on the Trade Event will be announced in due course.
