The European Parliament has issued a report endorsing the European Commission’s 2007 “reinforced Market Access Strategy”, a component of the Global Europe trade policy. The objective of the reinforced Market Access Strategy is to reduce or eliminate trade barriers with key European trading partners. The Commission states that, since 2007, the reinforced Market Access Strategy has facilitated better cooperation, information exchanges and intelligence gathering with trading partners. This has led to the reduction or elimination of trade barriers in key markets, including Brazil, India, Japan and Russia. The Parliament’s report encourages the Commission to continue working to reduce or eliminate trade barriers in European export markets.
