New EU Trade Policy

Making the right policy choices in designing a trade policy for the world of 2030 means taking into account recent political, economic technological, environmental, and social shifts and the global trends emerging from them. On 17 February 2021, the European Commission has set out its trade strategy for the coming years due to fast-moving shifts in policies caused by global uncertainty and growing unilateralism. The EU’s new trade policy focuses on three core objectives: supporting the recovery and fundamental transformation of the EU economy in line with its green and digital objectives, shaping global rules for more sustainable and fairer globalisation, increasing the EU’s capacity to pursue its interests and enforce its rights, including autonomously where needed.
