Extracts from the joint press conference by Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the EC, and Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the Trade Package
On 14 September 2017, 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 in Brussels, 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 today 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. This video shows extracts of the press conference.

Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the Launch of the Alliance for Torture-Free Trade
On 7 September 2017, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Trade, gave a press conference to announce that the EU will launch an international Alliance for Torture-Free Trade. The initiative – a joint effort together with Argentina and Mongolia – aims to end trade in goods used for capital punishment and torture (e.g. batons with metal spikes, electric shock belts, and grabbers that seize people by the waist or limb while electrocuting them, chemicals used to execute people and the forced injection systems that go with them). Over 50 UN member countries from all over the word were expected to join on 18 September 2017, for launch day. By signing up to the Alliance, countries will be agreeing to take measures to control and restrict exports of these goods, equip their customs authorities with appropriate tools, make technical assistance available to help other countries with setting up and implementing laws to ban this trade and exchange practices for efficient control and enforcement systems. The Alliance will also set up a platform to monitor trade flows, exchange information, and identify new products. The EU is committed to protecting human rights, and to the fight against torture and the abolition of the death penalty. The EU’s stringent legislation on trade in goods used for torture or the death penalty has already reaped results. Effort at the global level will make it even more efficient, as it will prevent its circumvention.
