TTIP: Challenges and Opportunities in the Area of Textiles and Labelling

31-08-2015

The paper, produced by Policy Department A for the IMCO committee, analyses opportunities and challenges of TTIP for the EU in textile and clothing (T&C). This area differs from other industrial sectors in that average tariff levels are relatively high and a number of tariff peaks still exist. It would not be difficult to negotiate the complete phase out of all tariff barriers and obtain gains for consumers and firms.

The paper, produced by Policy Department A for the IMCO committee, analyses opportunities and challenges of TTIP for the EU in textile and clothing (T&C). This area differs from other industrial sectors in that average tariff levels are relatively high and a number of tariff peaks still exist. It would not be difficult to negotiate the complete phase out of all tariff barriers and obtain gains for consumers and firms. A more challenging task will be to tackle the existing high level of non-tariff barriers. To be able to exploit the potential gains from trade liberalization, the challenge for EU negotiators is to enter a regulatory co-operation game with the US while maintaining the high level of health and environment protection achieved in the EU.

Overview of the Agricultural Inputs Sector in the EU

15-07-2015

This study analyzes the seed, feed, energy, fertilizer, and plant protection agents farm input sectors from two perspectives: the demand side and the supply side. Average input shares in the EU-27 for seeds and fertilizers declined while they increased for feeds. Market concentration is the largest in the plant protection agents sector followed by the energy sector, and lowest in the feed sector.

Reshoring of EU manufacturing

21-03-2014

Rising costs in formerly low-cost countries, and particularly China, have recently brought reshoring – bringing back manufacturing – to the fore. The hope is for a return of the many jobs that left the EU from the 1980s through to the 2000s.

The Consequences of REACH for SMEs

15-10-2013

This note examines the consequences of REACH legislation for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) since its entry into force in June 2007. It looks at impacts on the internal organisation of firms (including human resources), on strategy and on business activities. We also assess the experience of SMEs with available support and the perceived added value of REACH for SMEs. Our findings are based on a review of the literature and a set of interviews to a sample of firms.
