CEEV expresses its strong support in favour of the EU-Vietnam Trade Agreement and calls on the European Parliament to ensure a speedy ratification process. Besides the tariffs elimination, the European wine industry expects several benefits from the EU-Vietnam Agreement such as the protection of key Geographical Indications and the removal of the technical barriers that are hindering EU wine exports.
“In the current global trade context, wine companies blatantly need to diversify markets”, said Jean-Marie Barillère, President of CEEV. “By supporting the EU-Vietnam agreement, the INTA Committee would send the right signal to the exporting companies striving to penetrate the promising ASEAN region”.
