The new American administration’s protectionist tendencies need to be taken seriously.

It is in Europe’s interest to preserve the accomplishments brought about in multilateral trade, in particular through adapting World Trade Organization (WTO)  practices: conserving “inclusive” global economic agreements, maintaining the balance of norms and management of agreements that have been put in place. For this, Europe must improve institutional efficiency and political cohesion, in short, take some initiative.

John Solal-Arouet is the pseudonym of a group of trade experts and negotiators.
Denis Tersen is a French expert on trade, and former French representative in the EU Trade Policy Committee.
