Study: Identifying industry FTA-priorities



Green growth is high on the European and Nordic agenda and throughout the Danish EU presidency in the first half of 2012 the Council and the Commission has analysed different avenues for a free trade agreement for climate-friendly products. For the moment the most realistic option seems to be to include climate-friendly products as a special chapter in upcoming bilateral free trade agreement negotiations.

For the purpose of mapping industry priorities and identify trade barriers on relevant markets, Nordic Innovation will commission a study focusing upon Nordic green tech industries. The results from the study will be forward to the European Commission and EFTAs secretariat.
