This year, and looking to the future it is clear that Europe will have to be strategic when it comes to trade. Due to the expansion of emerging markets and the powerful growth of economical leaders, EU needs a new strategic approach. Making alliances, delivering new economic opportunities and opening its trade to new partners are essential steps to assert European trade in the global market once again. Looking to the future, and the theme of this year’s event, Tomorrow’s Europe: Inclusive, Innovative and Interconnected – we need to reassert the power of the third word, interconnected. It is within this interconnectivity that the future of European trade strategy lies. To learn more about the topic, come to the EBS Session on European Trade Strategy on the 6th and 7th of May 2019 at the Egmont Palace in Brussels!
