The conference will be an effective platform to showcase and present the most up-to-date developments on standards, policies and legislation around emerging technologies.
Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, met yesterday in Brussels with His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar.
The EU’s trade and development policy is outlined in the 2012 communication on ‘Trade, growth and development’. Least developed countries (LDCs) benefit from the Everything But Arms scheme, while the Generalised Scheme of Preferences has been reformed and Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) for ACP countries replace preferential treatment for non-LDCs. A new EU Aid for Trade strategy is being discussed on the basis of a new Commission communication issued in September 2017. The EU actively supports the WTO Development Round.
Update: A presentation about the study is now available.
