The second round of negotiations took place by video conference from 6 to 8 July. It allowed for substantial progress on the outstanding issues relating to three areas: technical barriers to trade, customs and trade facilitation and sanitary and phytosanitary issues, and towards better understanding of both sides’ proposals on rules of origin.
The next round is foreseen for November (exact dates to be confirmed).
