【Event announcement】
Jan. 21 Special Lecture “The EU Trade Policy–Values, Goals and Actors of the EU Common Commercial Policy”
Speaker: Dr. Jan Schmitz
Moderator:  Prof. Yoshiteru Uramoto, Sophia

Dr. Schmitz has been working as a trade diplomat at the Directorate-General for Trade of the EU for over 10 years. His assignments included the coordination of the EU team in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations, and EU lead negotiator for financial services and EU lead negotiator for the movement of natural persons. Currently, he is responsible for trade related aspects of intellectual property where he represents the EU at the WTO TRIPS Council in Geneva.

The lecture will present an overview of EU trade policy in the current global context of trade tensions between the United States and China and the possible erosion of the multilateral trade order. It will explain the efforts of the EU to maintain the multilateral world trade order as enshrined in the WTO agreements as well as the EU’s intensified efforts to conclude substantial bilateral trade agreements, such as the recently concluded Japan-EU Free Trade Agreement (JEFTA). Among others, the lecture will address the following questions:
• What are the specific goals and values in EU trade policy?
• What content is the EU negotiating in its trade agreements?
• How does the EU link its trade agenda with the United Nations SDGs?
• Who are the actors in EU trade policy development?
