National event on digital trade and data flows at major ICT fair
Build an industry coalition
To support a specific EU trade negotiation, we created a pro-trade cross-sectorial industry coalition. We set the strategic direction of the coalition and facilitated direct engagement with institutional stakeholders in the EU as well as with the trading partner.
Oppose unfair trading practices
The European Commission’s plans to impose anti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties on Chinese PV panels and components threatened our client’s flagship business. Through a “capitals tour” of trade ministries, we contributed to maintaining the definitive tariffs 75% lower and for a shorter duration than initially proposed.
Contribute to EU trade policy
Our client, a large business association, supported a comprehensive and ambitious EU-Japan Free Trade Agreement. We developed a positive narrative on behalf of the association to accompany the negotiations and created opportunities for dialogue with chief negotiators and the business community on key topics like regulatory cooperation and digital trade through direct engagement and high-level events in Brussels and in Member States.
