EU and Mexico conclude sixth round of trade negotiations

The sixth round of trade negotiations between the European Union (EU) and Mexico took place in Mexico City from November 25 to December 1st.

The European Commission reports that the negotiating teams had talks on all issues, with progress made on key issues like market access for goods, services and public procurement as well as trade, the investment court system and sustainable development. Discussions also took place on energy and raw materials and anti-corruption.

The overall objective of the ongoing negotiations between the EU and Mexico is to adapt the existing agreement negotiated two decades ago to the reality of today's global trade. Both sides are committed to make the agreement ready for political conclusion before the end of this year.

The negotiating teams will meet again, in Brussels, in the week beginning December 17.
