Europe's future trade strategy: free, fair, open?

Virtual event (via GoToWebinar)

12 November, 15.00 - 16.30

The European Commission has set a revamped trade agenda as one of its priorities, and an important part of its industrial strategy. It will propose a new trade policy strategy for the next four years, focusing on creating new trade opportunities while implementing existing trade agreements. At this time of shifting geopolitical landscapes and increased protectionism, the challenge to free, fair and open rules-based trade is bigger than ever.

Representing Europe’s technology industries, Orgalim is bringing together a selected group of experts to debate Europe’s future approach to trade, looking at core areas such as the trade strategy, the evolution of global supply chains and the notion of open strategic autonomy.

Join senior representatives from the European Commission, the European Parliament and industry for an interactive virtual session to discuss Europe’s future trade strategy.

  • René Branders, CEO, FIB Belgium S.A, President of Agoria

  • Elīna Melngaile, Member of Cabinet, Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice-President of "An Economy that Works for People", European Commission
