Trade: Orgalim answer to the European Commission public consultation on the Trade Policy Review “A renewed trade policy for a stronger Europe”

Published: 25 September 2020

Policies & Issues: Trade

Orgalim welcomes the review of Europe’s trade policy to ensure the trade agenda continues to support our industries’ growth and export abilities. Driving an effective future trade policy will, in our view, be central. Europe’s technology industries are strongly export-oriented and depend on international trade for their success, representing over a third of the EU’s manufactured exports. The EU must help companies to maintain leadership in the global competitiveness race by leading the global response to protectionism; standing up for free, fair and open rules-based trade; and enhancing market access for our companies.

This paper sets out our key recommendations for a future-facing EU trade policy to support these objectives.
