Question for written answer E-001370-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Laurenţiu Rebega (ECR)

 Subject:  Importance of proposing a zero-duty tariff rate quota (TRQ) on raw cane sugar as part of ongoing free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations
 Answer in writing 

The free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations with Mercosur and Australia provide a unique opportunity to propose a zero-duty tariff rate quota (TRQ) on raw cane sugar imports. A zero-duty TRQ would limit the volume of raw cane sugar being imported into the EU, while still enabling EU sugar refiners to purchase raw materials at competitive prices.

Is the Commission planning to include a zero-duty TRQ for raw cane sugar in the FTAs with Mercosur and Australia?
