During our Presidency, talks will also revolve around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the EU and the USA (TTIP), the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and granting China the status of market economy. “For the Slovak Presidency it is of key importance to reach a mutually acceptable agreement between the EU and China, as proposed by the European Commission,” stated State Secretary Korčok.
