Brussels Daily

Read the European Commission Study on the cumulative economic impact of future trade agreements on EU agriculture here

 

Conclusions

• Substantial opportunities for dairy and pigmeat – need for trade agreements to achieve benefits and not lose out (TPP)

• Additional benefits: geographical indications, sanitary and phyto-sanitary, other non-tariff

• Make use of promotion and economic diplomacy

• Keep existing approach of limiting import liberalisation for sensitive products

• Agricultural policy provides instruments to accompany market opening and improving competitiveness
