Consultation So Far

On 11 September 2020, the European Commission (DG TRADE) held a Civil Society Dialogue on the state of play of negotiations and on the draft Inception Report for this study (please see the reports page to download a copy of the final Inception report). For more information on the Civil Society Dialogue please see DG TRADE’s web page.


Upcoming Consultation Activities

The project team will be carrying out interviews in the five ESA countries. Due to the current Covid situation, we will be doing so via telephone and video call.
