00:01:58 Speech by Karel de GUCHT, Member of the EC in charge of Trade (ENGLISH) :" Imports and exports are not rivals. We need both. But – and here we come to the issues at the heart of this summit – can open markets promote sustainable growth? Can we make sure that the gains from trade are widely distributed? And that the environment and labour rights are protected? The most important thing to remember in this regard is that trade cannot be a standalone policy. Trade in itself can never deliver sustainability. " 00:00:40

00:02:49 Speech by Karel DE GUCHT (English):"In general, we have already taken visible strides towards building a more stable framework for modern and open trade relations. · We have highly successful trade agreements with Mexico and Chile, in force for over a decade. · Since 2008 we also have an economic partnership agreement with countries of the Caribbean. This is the first of a set of trade-for development agreements we wish to achieve around the world and it is already showing its potential to boost development. · And last year we signed agreements with Central America, Columbia and Peru that should come into operation in the next few months, if we all work hard to put the final arrangements in place.
