The Commission published today – as part of its commitment to a more transparent trade policy – reports summarising the progress made during the latest negotiating rounds for the EU-Mexico and EU-Mercosur trade agreements.
The round reports include more details on progress made in all areas of the negotiations, including trade in goods, services, investment and technical barriers to trade.
Both negotiations are progressing at a good pace with full engagement from both partners.
