The conference is taking place in the run-up to the Netherlands’ Presidency of the Council of the EU.
The focus of the conference will be on implementing sustainable business practices through aid and trade. The conference will produce tangible policy suggestions, improve implementation of EU aid and trade policy, strengthen EU external policy – particularly its aid and trade agenda – and stimulate sustainable global value chains. Please read the Dutch vision paper on EU and Global Value Chains with more information on how the conference will contribute to sustainable global value chains.
