Free Trade Agreement European Union

By Zach Arnold | September 21, 2021

The rules of origin applicable to products from a country are set out in a protocol on origin annexed to the specific agreement between the EU and the country concerned. On 3 April 2017, Mexico and the European Union held the third round of negotiations on the modernisation of their free trade agreement in Brussels, Belgium. On 8 May 2017, Mexico and the EU announced dates for the next three trade negotiations: 26-30 June, 25-29 September and 27 November-1 December 2017. The fourth round of negotiations began on 26 June 2017 in Mexico City. The fifth round of negotiations was composed of 21 negotiating groups and ended on 2 October 2017 in Brussels. The sixth round of negotiations on the modernisation of the free trade agreement ended on 5 December 2017 in Mexico City.

Beyond the usual chapter that provides for preferential tariff treatment, these agreements often contain trade facilitation clauses and regulatory rules in areas such as investment, intellectual property, government procurement, technical standards, and sanitary and phytosanitary issues.

In May 2015, Mexico`s Minister of Economy and the European Commission`s Trade Commissioner met to advance preparations for the modernisation of the trade part of the global agreement between Mexico and the European Union. The EU has concluded trade agreements with these countries/regions, but both sides are negotiating an update. The joint negotiation of free trade agreements (FTAs) with partners outside the European Union (EU) allows EFTA to actively pursue its objective of creating trade opportunities for its operators and thus generating growth in the economies of its Member States. As such, they can become more competitive outside the EU. The EU`s modern free trade agreements intend to do more than reduce tariffs. In addition, they aim to improve market access by removing non-tariff barriers (e.g. ? through regulatory cooperation), by liberalising trade in services and opening up markets to public procurement. . . .
