BRUSSELS, 27 Nov — a Broad trade agreement between the European Union and the United States is still a good idea, however now its conclusion is impossible, said the European Commissioner for trade Cecilia malmström at the conference.
“The big trade agreement between the EU and the USA is still a very good idea, but it’s impossible at the moment,” she said. Malmström recalled that at the end of July 2018, the EU and the U.S. met in Washington and agreed on a dialogue on trade issues.
“We tried to find common ground and work on it, to see how we can promote trade between us. This is the platform that we have at the moment,” she said.
