Sweden’s foreign trade ministry urged the European Union (EU) and the Philippines to resume their negotiations for a free trade agreement, according to Phil Star.
“They have not been finalized, perhaps when the momentum has been lost for a few years. What we are saying now is when the time is right, we should restart those negotiations,” said Sweden’s foreign trade minister, Johan Forssell.
The talk on the EU-Philippines free trade agreement was put on hold from November 2020.
The first negotiation began in 2015 and the second one was held in 2017.
