CELCAA and COPA-COGECA debate how trade works for agriculture at the 2015 WTO Public Forum September 24, 2015

CELCAA and COPA-COGECA will host a workshop on 2nd October 2015 during the WTO public forum to discuss how trade works for agriculture. The workshop will focus on the role of the trade and fair rules as an efficient tool to promote productivity, growth and jobs in agriculture in Europe and elsewhere. 
Come and join the debate ! Detailed programme is available here.

CELCAA Secretary-General, Pascale Rouhier, said “From the start, the EU agri-food chain has been a strong supporter of an ambitious EU-Japan FTA. I hope that expectations from the sector will be met in terms of tariffs elimination, and the removal of non-tariff barriers impacting EU exports. We also welcome the fact that Japan has agreed to recognise the EU system of Geographical Indications (GIs) to protect our agri-food products from imitations. Such a deal could result in a significant increase in our exports of high-value added products to Japan”.
