On 24 January 2024, the Commission proposed a trade and research package to strengthen the EU’s economic security at a time of growing geopolitical tensions and profound technological shifts. The package seeks to enhance the EU’s economic security while upholding the openness of trade, investment, and research for the EU’s economy, in line with the June 2023 European Economic Security Strategy.

The trade and investment proposals are part of broader three-pillar approach to address risks to the EU economic security by promoting the EU's competitiveness, protecting EU’s interest in a targeted and proportionate manner and partnering with the broadest possible range of partners.
