Intrview of Baudilio Tome Maguruza, Member of the Court of Auditors, on ECA Special Report SR 02/2014: 'Are Preferential Trade Arrangements appropriately managed?'
On 21 May 2015, Baudilio Tomé Muguruza, Member of the European Court of Auditors (ECA), gave an interview ECA Special Report SR 02/2014 'Are Preferential Trade Arrangements appropriately managed?'. The report published by the European Court of Auditors (ECA) reveals that while the EU Commission has increased the quality of its impact assessments, it still does not sufficiently analyse the economic impact of preferential trade agreements. Moreover, the EU loses revenue because of weak Member State customs controls that fail to prevent some imports from wrongly benefiting from preferential tariffs. SHOTLIST
