The Jacques Delors Institute deciphers the functioning and priorities of the EU’s trade policy, which must allow it to retain its ranking as the leading trade power in the world and to further leverage the strategic potential of this policy in its other external action areas.
While Europeans strive to retain their trade position against the rise of China and new economic powers, the EU’s trade policy is proving to be all the more important for Member States’ competitiveness as, in the future, 90% of demand growth will come from outside the EU. In addition, the stalemate in multilateral negotiations is not curbing Europeans’ ambition to achieve more effective regulation of globalisation.
Pascal Lamy, President Emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute, gives a conference on "Europe and Globalisation : what political choices for the left ?" during a meeting organised by several local sections of the Parti Socialiste.
