Challenges and opportunities of free trade
25.10.2016 @ 12:15 - 14:00
Further enhancing the liberalisation-level of trade between nations is essential for Danish shipping and platforms such as EU bilateral Free Trade Agreements and the TiSA negotiations contributes to that end. At the same time, protectionist tendencies in the international market place are a growing concern, which underlines the need for further defensive mitigation. The event will provide the attendees with an overview of the current free trade climate in global shipping and from the NGO perspective.
