The EU trade policy has to reflect our social-democratic values of justice and solidarity.
The Lisbon Treaty gave the European Parliament new powers in the area of trade policy. We have to use these instruments to promote and implement our common principles and values.
Our Group needs to have a coherent and progressive approach in this important area. For this reason, we have to make our work in the INTA Committee more visible while ensuring better cooperation with other committees.
When discussed and accepted in our INTA working group, this document will be submitted for consideration and approval of the Bureau and the Group as a whole.
