A trade event on “EU TRADE POLICY”, is taking place today 04.09.2014 at Filoxenia Conference Centre. EU Commissioner for Trade, Mr. Karel De Gucht, will be the keynote speaker at a event.
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 Commissioner’s speech will be followed by a Questions & Answers session.
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.
