Making Trade Agreements Work

The ITA Trade Agreements Compliance (TAC Program) works to reduce barriers to market access abroad and to monitor foreign government compliance with obligations under trade agreements. TAC identifies, reviews and removes trade barriers that cooperate with industry. By using relevant trade agreements, ITA instructs foreign governments to remove or remove trade barriers as quickly as possible. Our goal is to operate trade agreements for U.S. industry and help companies enter foreign markets and lead the way to growth and jobs through exports. Exporters and investors can report a barrier online and receive quick assistance from the program. The TAC program, along with other U.S. government trade experts, believes that the problem of trade barriers may be the result of a foreign country that does not meet the commitment of a trade agreement with the United States, the program works by senior U.S. government officials and U.S. embassies to get the foreign government to comply with its agreement.

Experts from the U.S. government will compile the facts and show officials in the other country why we think the case is not consistent with their agreement. The workshop will be an opportunity to examine the obstacles facing Member States, regions and the SME community in implementing free trade agreements and the challenges of more effective implementation. Given the announced focus of the next Commission on improving the implementation of trade agreements, the workshop will also examine the role that each level of government could play in this regard. Following the presentation of the main results of the CoR`s Eurochamber survey on the implementation of free trade agreements and the EPRS analysis on the implementation of CETA, a roundtable will focus on opportunities to improve the integration of existing EU trade agreements by SMEs in all EU Member States and regions, ensuring that trade and globalisation play a leading role in sustainable growth. , employment and industrial renewal. A key element of the EU`s preferential trade and free trade agreements is the extent to which they provide better market access and thus contribute to the EU`s foreign policy objectives vis-à-vis developing countries and neighbouring countries in Europe, including the Balkan countries. Previous preferential trade regimes have been ineffective in improving access to the EU market.

The main reason for this is probably the very restrictive nature of the rules of origin imposed by the EU, as well as the cost of proof of consistency with these rules. If the EU wants the `all but arms` agreement and free trade agreements with Balkan countries to lead to significant improvements in EU market access for products from those countries, it must review current rules of origin and implement less restrictive rules, underpinned by a prudent protection policy. Yes, as new trade agreements will be implemented, they will be added to the TAC website.
