Priorities of the Latvian Presidency in the area of international trade

Zanda Kalniņa Lukaševica, the Latvian Parliamentary State Secretary for EU affairs was invited by the INTA Committee to present the Priorities of the Latvian Presidency in the area of international trade. She confirmed that TTIP, Japan, Vietnam and the Doha round are the top priorities of the Presidency. However, there was a strong reluctance towards ISDS among several INTA Committee members.

The Latvian Presidency will wait for the Commission’s proposal based on stakeholder consultations. On TDI, Member States are divided on the lesser duty rule. Latvia will ask the Commission to make another proposal to find a compromise at Council leve.
