Policy Seminar

The Future of Trade and Sustainable Development (TSD) Chapters in EU Trade Agreements (FTAs):

Perspectives from Labour Voices in Trade Partner Countries


Tuesday 19 December, 12.45 - 14.45, Brussels

This policy seminar engaged discussion on the future of the TSD agenda in the European Union and in the EU’s trade partner countries. How should TSD chapters in EU FTAs be reformed? What do labour representatives from the EU’s trade partners think about the current ideas for reform?

The event brought together trade union representatives from three trade partner countries (Colombia, Korea and Moldova) to reflect on the European Commission's non-paper ideas for reform, providing also their perspectives on how the EU’s TSD agenda can best support labour rights in trade partner countries in the future.
