Brussels, 6 September 2022
On the 6th of September, FEPORT Secretariat attended the fourth meeting of the EU Domestic Advisory Group (DAG) on the implementation of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, ie the agreement that was struck between the EU and the UK to govern post-Brexit relations.
FEPORT Secretary General is the alternate representative of the transport sector in this DAG, which gives civil society stakeholders the opportunity to raise any concern they may have regarding the implementation of the EU-UK TCA.
During the meeting, the Commission (DG TRADE) gave an update regarding the issues that the different transport stakeholders had raised in March 2022.
Regarding the UK freeport initiative, which had initially been raised by FEPORT as a point of concern, DG TRADE noted that they closely monitor the UK’s action in this regard.
