The round allowed for thorough discussions covering the majority of the areas of the future agreement. This round of negotiations resulted in a provisional agreement on two additional chapters: ‘Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)’ and ‘Capital Movements’. So far, we had provisionally agreed on two other chapters – ‘Transparency’ and ‘Customs and Trade Facilitation’, as well as on the text of the ‘Anti-Fraud clause’.
The Executive Vice-President and Commissioner for Trade Valdis Dombrovskis and New Zealand Minister for Trade Damien O’Connor are expected to take stock of the achieved progress before the end of the year.
