Following today’s hearing in front of the International Trade Committee of the European Parliament, the Socialists and Democrats expressed their confidence in the personal competence and experience demonstrated by the European Commission Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis.

The S&D spokesperson in the International Trade Committee, Kathleen Van Brempt, said:

“For us it is fundamental that the EU trade policy - in full accordance with our domestic Green Deal policy - puts Europe in the global lead to ensure the transition towards a new, fair and sustainable economic model.

“It is therefore essential that in our trade agreements with international partners are binding, enforceable and sanction based and that Trade and Sustainable Development (TSD) chapters are always included. Empty words and promises have to be replaced by strong and enforceable agreements.
