“Today is a bad day for world trade. The EU cannot not react. We will immediately introduce a settlement dispute at #WTO and will announce counterbalancing measures in the next hours. Unilateral measures totally unacceptable." Jean-Claude Juncker

The US announced that starting on 1 June 2018 it will impose additional duties of 25 % and 10 % respectively on imports of steel and aluminium from the EU.

We will defend the Union's interests, in full compliance with international trade law.

With €101 Billion for the period 2021–2027, we want to strengthen Europe's social dimension and to make the European Pillar of #SocialRights a reality.

Plastic waste is choking our oceans, killing wildlife and threatening our own health.
We are proposing to target the 10 single-use plastic products most often found on Europe's beaches and seas.
As they can be substituted with cleaner alternatives, plastic cotton buds, cutlery, plates, straws , drink stirrers and sticks for balloons will be banned.

The use of plastic food containers and drinks cups will have to be reduced and 90 % of single-use plastic drinks bottles should be collected by 2025.

Industry will also be given incentives to develop less polluting alternatives for food containers, packets and wrappers , drinks containers and cups, tobacco products with filters, wet wipes, balloons, and lightweight plastic bags.
