European Trade Policy at a Crossroads

“I believe in the benefits of trade, for Italy and for Europe. Economic benefits like prosperity, and jobs. But also social benefits – more connections, more opportunities, wider horizons. Trade brings people together, and it is a formidable force for good.”

Earlier this week, EU trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström met Italian politicians, businessmen, and civil society in Milan to talk about the importance of European trade policy: where it is, and where we need to take it. Malmström further said that despite existing worries with regards to the effects of trade, trade can be for all – should be for all – and called on to the audience to not dismiss concerns but to respond to them.
