New report outlines a trade policy roadmap for Sweden, EU and the UK
19 May 2021
The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv) and the Institute of Directors have commissioned a report to identify proposals where there is joint interest for trade policy coordination or cooperation between Sweden, EU and the UK.
The proposals in the report include, among other things, extending the accession and coverage of WTO agreements, using the UK-EU trade agreement in areas such as e-commerce, data-flows and subsidies as a baseline to progress on international rules or other trade agreements, as well as re-launching negotiations for an environmental goods agreement at the WTO.
Financial Times reviewed the report and describes the two organisations as "two of the most constructive European business associations in trade in recent years".
