Vote on Customs duties on goods originating in Ukraine
Committee on International Trade (INTA) will vote on a draft report on the Commission proposal aimed at prolonging the autonomous trade preferences for Ukraine (rapporteur: Gabrielius Landsbergis (EPP). Following the postponement of the application of the EU-Ukraine Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) until 31 December 2015, the European Commission submitted an urgent proposal to prolong the existing preferences to cover that period. The existing preferences apply until 1 November 2014.
Hearing of the Commissioner-designate for Trade, Mrs Cecilia Malmström
In the context of the approval of the new European Commission, the Committee on International Trade (INTA) held a hearing of the Commissioner-designate for Trade, Mrs Cecilia Malmström (nominated by Sweden). The hearing took place on Monday 29 September 14:30-17:30 in Brussels.
Welcome to the website of the Committee on International Trade (INTA).
You will find the agendas and working documents of the Committee here, as well as additional information such as INTA newsletters, details on on-going reports and hearings.
Since the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, the EP has a decisive role to play in the definition of the Union's trade policy and acts as its democratic conscience. This is of particular importance since trade legislation and international trade agreements can only be implemented with the agreement of the EP.
I trust that this website will serve as an efficient information source and research tool that allows European citizens to achieve a better understanding of INTA's work and proceedings, as well as of the Union's trade policy in general.
Thank you for your visit. Should you have any further questions about the Committee's work please contact the Secretariat.
