The EU trade agreements with Mexico, South Korea, and Switzerland have increased EU exports by more than EUR 1 billion and have raised value added in the agri-food sector by 600 mn. EUR.
This increased export has supported almost 20,000 jobs in the agri-food sector and an additional 7,700 jobs in other sectors related to agri-food production and export. The trade agreements have also increased EU imports and given EU consumers and processors better access to agri-food products at lower prices.
Today, Commissioner Phil Hogan presents the results at a press conference in Brussels. Managing Economist, Eva Rytter Sunesen, will be present to answer technical questions related to the study.
