In an increasingly interconnected yet fragmented world marked by globalisation, the EU faces a complex and pivotal challenge of shaping its trade policy. The traditional landscape of global trade, once characterised by predictable patterns, has been disrupted by the emergence of protectionist measures, the Net Zero Industry Act, Inflation Reduction Act and the formation of regional blocs. With a long-standing commitment to open markets and global economic integration, the EU trade policy faces new prospects and changes in these uncertain times.

We engaged with Bernd Lange in this conversation to discuss the EU's trade policy in an era of global fragmentation.
