Luxembourg has taken over the EU Presidency on 1 July 2015. Stimulating investment to boost growth and employment will be one of the key objectives of the Presidency for the next six months. In that context, Luxembourg will work to conclude political negotiations with Vietnam and Japan and to sign the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with Canada (CETA).

In addition, the Presidency will try to advance discussions on TTIP paying particular attention to discussions on the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanisms and transparency. Last but not least, the Luxembourg Presidency confirmed that they will continue efforts to improve the governance of the Customs Union.
