Expert views and analysis

On the 25th of January 2017, ENC held a preliminary Roundtable Policy Discussion in the European Parliament with the relevant stakeholders from business associations, industry sectors, think tanks and government. The objective was to discuss EU-Turkey economic relations, while preparing for the ENC Report on Customs Union reform.

The current Report highlights the need for reform and indicates a list of recommendations for policy adjustments which will both help boost growth and employment in Europe and Turkey, while providing an increasingly important foreign policy anchor for the EU and Turkey.
