Malmström Rallies Around TiSA

“The recent revised offers and the work done so far represent real improvement, but we certainly still need more ambition. The EU is ready to go an additional mile but everyone needs to join if we want to achieve an agreement able to shape the global economy of the 21st century.”

European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström chaired a meeting on the negotiations for the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) with 22 fellow ministers in Paris earlier last week. The participants discussed the recently revised trade offers, specifically financial services, maritime issues, and visas. Malmström expressed optimism that a TiSA agreement could be reached by the end of this year. (European Commission)
