Young Voices Advocates Published on Huffington Post Germany Writing About Free Trade

Young Voices Advocate Yael Ossowski and Director Fred Roeder were published by Huffington Post Germany writing about the positive effects a free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union will have for consumers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Any kind of relaxation of import tariffs and increase of import quotas should be welcomed since those allow more choice for consumers. At the same time it is important to stress out that those trade negotiations that last for years, have an uncertain outcome, and result in merely increasing import quotas.

EU trade policy makers could go even further by unilaterally liberalizing trade and thus empowering producers of goods and services from allover the world to export to the EU. This would allow the 500 million customers living in the EU to choose from a larger variety of goods at less cost and thus boost their purchase power – That would be a true stimulus package at zero cost.
