Trade & External Affairs

In its latest position paper, AmCham EU sets out its key messages regarding the ongoing EU-Mexico free trade negotiations.

AmCham EU members strongly support an ambitious outcome to these talks, which represent an important opportunity for the two parties to build on their existing economic ties and bring the current agreement into line with modern business practices. The US business community underscores that the benefits to the EU and Mexican economies from the modernised agreement can only be realised once the FTA has been signed, ratified and properly implemented by both parties. Swift conclusion and ratification is therefore essential.

AmCham EU continues to play an active and constructive role in ongoing EU trade negotiations, including the modernisation of the EU-Mexico FTA. Our members stand ready and willing to provide input and expertise to negotiators and relevant stakeholders throughout this process, in pursuit of an ambitious agreement that meets the needs of businesses, consumers and society.
