The Annual General Meeting of the European Dredging Association (EuDA) is scheduled for 13 November 2014.
With the title “Breaking Trade Barriers around the World – Special Focus on the World Dredging Markets”, this event will take place at the Stanhope Hotel in Brussels and will start at 10.00am.
“In worldwide dredging markets, many types of trade barriers have been put in place to restrict or to exclude foreign competition. At best, European dredgers are prevented from delivering the full extent of their added value and, at worst, they are prevented from accessing closed markets,” stated EuDA.
“Following the recent failure of the multilateral negotiations of the WTO Doha Round, the direct bilateral Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) between economic zones have been reactivated.”
“The EuDA Conference will open with an overview of Trade Barriers around the world and look into the way trade negotiations can manage to lift some of them with the recent example of Canada and U.S. The Conference will conclude on the possible ways forward for the European Dredgers.”
