EU Trade Ministers to meet in Brussels 

The EU Ministers of Trade will meet in Brussels on 10 November 2017. Finland's representative at the meeting will be Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen.

The ministers will discuss preparations for the 11th WTO ministerial conference, which will take place from 10 to 13 December in Buenos Aires.  The latest developments in the negotiations are challenging but Finland believes that the WTO ministerial meeting will reach concrete results.

The trade ministers will also take stock of the EU’s ongoing negotiations for trade agreements with Mexico and Mercosur. Finland’s objective is that both negotiations will lead to agreements that will improve Finnish companies’ future prospects in these markets.

The trade ministers will also look at the Report assessing the implementation of the EU’s existing trade agreements, published by the European Commission on 9 November 2017. 

At lunch, the ministers will receive the Commission’s update of the stage of preparations for the free trade agreement with Japan. Additionally, a debate will be held on trade and sustainable development in EU trade agreements.
