CELCAA Position on EU-MEXICO FTA March 12, 2015

CELCAA has answered the survey of Ecorys on the implementation of the current EU-Mexico FTA and possible future modernisation of the FTA. 
The EU negotiators should clearly address the current import limitations impacting EU exports to Mexico, for a successful outcome of the negotiations – such as tariff peaks on some agricultural products, the unjustifiably long process of approving EU meat establishments for the export of fresh meat to Mexico or approval of dairy plants for exports of dairy products and the lack of protection for Geographical Indications.
CELCAA, the European Umbrella of the trade in agri-food and agri-commodities products welcomes the provisional application as it will increase market access for many EU agri-food products, protect the European GIs and provides a fast track process for SPS issues.
