CELCAA Working Session at the 2014 WTO Public Forum available September 22, 2014

At the 2014 WTO Public Forum, CELCAA is organising on 3rd October 2014 a Working Session that will discuss the role of the agri-food trade in connection with consumers' needs and expectations. Come join the debate, at WTO Secretariat, Room B, from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

The 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”.
