The President of CEOE Internacional and Vice President of the Business at OECD Trade Committee, Marta Blanco, has participated in the Business at OECD Trade Committee. The meeting discussed trade and climate change, and served as an opportunity to prepare for future meetings and the Trade Committee of the OECD.
The following fundamental aspects stand out from the intervention by Marta Blanco:
· Multilateral or bilateral agreements can contribute significantly to the fight against climate change, by eliminating tariff and non-tariff barriers on ecological goods and services.
· Trade can do a lot for the climate, but it should not replace environmental policy in the fight against climate change.
