Council of the EU decides to publish mandate for Trade in Services Agreement

12/03/2015 | Economy |  The Trade in Services Agreement is a trade agreement currently being negotiated by 24 members of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), including the EU.


The European Commission welcomes the decision by the Council of the EU to make public the directives for the negotiations for a plurilateral Trade in Services Agreement or TiSA. 

This decision follows a letter sent by Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström on 29 January 2015, asking the Latvian Presidency for its publication. 

Commenting on today's decision Commissioner Malmström said: "I am glad that EU governments have agreed my proposal to make the TiSA negotiating mandate public. This is yet another step in our commitment to improve transparency in EU trade negotiations. Citizens will be able to see for themselves that in the TiSA negotiations the EU protects public services, preserves the right to regulate at all levels of government and ensures that we can maintain the highest standard". 

The Trade in Services Agreement is a trade agreement currently being negotiated by 24 members of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), including the EU. 

Together, these countries account for 70% of world trade in services.
