Joint press conference by Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the EC, and Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the Trade Package

Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, and Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Trade, gave a joint press conference on the Trade Package presented the day before by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the EC, in his State of the Union Address 2017. The EC unveiled a weighty package of trade and investment proposals for a progressive and ambitious trade agenda. The proposals included the creation of a European screening framework to ensure that foreign direct investment did not compromise the EU's strategic interests when it came to security and public order, as well as draft mandates to open trade negotiations with Australia and New Zealand. In a move to make the EU's trade policy the most transparent and inclusive in the world, the European Commission decided to set up an Advisory Group on EU trade agreements and to publish from now on any new proposal for negotiating mandates. These proposals also included a draft mandate to start negotiations towards the creation of a multilateral investment court. The EC also unveiled proposals to set up a European framework for screening foreign direct investment into the European Union. In parallel, it would start a detailed analysis of the foreign direct investment flows into the EU and set up a coordination group with Member States to help identify joint strategic concerns and solutions in the area of foreign direct investment.
