Eventbrite - Britain & Europe Seminar Series: Making the most of Europe - the EU's common commercial policy as a driver for growth

EU Commissioner De Gucht will address the benefits of EU membership when it comes to international trade negotiations. He will speak about the EU's trade agenda, and what has been achieved over the last four years. He will also update us on the current EU-US trade and investment negotiations. The recent media controversy over investment protection negotiations (read e.g. George Monbiot in the The Guardian, 2 December 2013) will be addressed straight on.

The event will be chaired by Sir Stephen Wall, Chair of UCL Council and of the UCL EI advisory board.

The event is part of our Britain and Europe series.

About the speaker:

Karel de Gucht is the European Commissioner for Trade since 2010. Previously, he was Commissioner for Development & Humanitarian Aid (2009-10) and Belgium's Minister of Foreign Affairs (2004-09). He was a member of the European Parliament (1995-99) and a member of the Flemish Parliament (for the Flemish Liberals and Democrats, VLD), 1999-2003.

As Commissioner for Trade, his role includes work on the Doha trade round and the conclusion of free Trade Agreements, coordinating the Trans-Atlantic Economic Council with the US and the High Level Economic Dialogue with China, and strengthening economic relations with other strategic trade partners.
