Setting New Rules – The Free Trade Agreements of the European Union

The European Union is currently negotiating free trade agreements (FTAs) with numerous countries, including Australia and New Zealand, Indonesia, and also with the Mercosur countries. In addition to the World Trade Organisation (WTO), FTAs are a central component of the EU’s trade strategy. However, the process of negotiating and concluding these agreements tends to be lengthy, controversial, and complicated.
