For a progressive trade policy
S&D MEPs are the driving force of progressive trade policy in the EU. With a progressive trade policy, our MEPs work to build a more transparent, democratic global trade system that benefits the many and not the few.
Our work on international trade
Our MEPs on the International Trade Committee scrutinise trade deals between the EU and third countries. When left to others, trade agreements can risk lowering standards. With the right approach, the S&D Group view trade deals as an opportunity to protect and strengthen our high labour and environmental standards and our way of life for the future
