Velkommen til websiden for Udvalget om International Handel (INTA).
Her finder du udvalgets dagsordener og arbejdsdokumenter samt yderligere oplysninger såsom INTA-nyhedsbreve og information om aktuelle betænkninger og høringer.
Europa-Parlamentet har siden Lissabontraktatens ikrafttræden spillet en afgørende rolle i fastlæggelsen af Unionens handelspolitik og fungerer som Unionens demokratiske samvittighed. Dette har særlig betydning, eftersom handelslovgivning og internationale handelsaftaler kun kan gennemføres med Europa-Parlamentets samtykke.
Udvalget håber, at dette websted vil tjene som en effektiv informationskilde og et effektivt forskningsværktøj, som vil sætte unionsborgerne i stand til at erhverve sig en bedre forståelse af INTA’s arbejde og procedurer samt af Unionens handelspolitik generelt.
Tak for dit besøg. Eventuelle yderligere spørgsmål vedrørende udvalgets arbejde bedes rettet til udvalgets sekretariat.
