The EU trade policy is an important contribution to overcome slow economic growth in the EU countries. Challenge this point of view
As it has been suggested EU trade policy contribution to economic growth of MSs should be considered at best moderate if not negligible – on one hand due to still extensively applied extra-tariff measures such as anti-dumping proceedings and safety and health procedures, on the other hand because of lack of direct link between liberalisation of trade in industrial commodities and stimulation of growth. All this seems quite logical if one takes under consideration the fact that EU trade policy objectives are to less extent aimed at promotion of growth rather than at achieving social and political goals.
