In addition, Members will discuss the International Procurement Instrument, Uzbekistan's application for GSP+ status, the modification of agricultural tariff rate quotas resulting from the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU and the strengthening of the implementation and enforcement of EU sanctions.

Members will vote on the EP's consent to the Voluntary Partnership Agreement between the EU and the Republic of Honduras on forest law enforcement and an accompanying resolution, as well as on INTA's opinion on the Farm to Fork Strategy.
