New briefing on the EU-Morocco Free Trade Agreement
Posted on 12/03/2013
Eurogroup for Animals released a brief insight into different ways how the EU and Morocco could include animal welfare in their Free Trade Agreement discussions.
Eurogroup for Animals is of the opinion that animal welfare provisions need to be fully integrated in Free Trade Agreements, in order to promote animal welfare in Third Countries and avoid the negative impact of potential trade liberalisation.
Emphasis on market access, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and sustainable development is placed in this briefing, with a specific focus on barbary macaques and tortoises.
