CELCAA Roundtable at European Parliament on 21st April 2015 March 18, 2015

CELCAA is organising a round table at the EP on 21st April, on the contribution of trade to the growth of the agricultural sector in the EU. This event is hosted by MEP Schaake, ALDE Coordinator at INTA. 
Speakers including Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan; Deputy Head of Cabinet of Commissioner for Trade, Miguel Ceballos Baron; Phil Vogan from Rabobank; Traders in wine and in arable crops. There will be a Q&A session 

CELCAA Secretary-General, Pascale Rouhier, said “From the start, the EU agri-food chain has been a strong supporter of an ambitious EU-Japan FTA. I hope that expectations from the sector will be met in terms of tariffs elimination, and the removal of non-tariff barriers impacting EU exports. We also welcome the fact that Japan has agreed to recognise the EU system of Geographical Indications (GIs) to protect our agri-food products from imitations. Such a deal could result in a significant increase in our exports of high-value added products to Japan”.
