ZAGREB, October 5, 2018 – Croatia supports the efforts by the European Commission to maintain constructive dialogue between the European Union and the United States, Croatia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Marija Pejčinović Burić, said on Friday.

Pejčinović Burić attended an informal meeting of the EU Foreign Affairs Council in its trade format in Innsbruck, Austria.

The meeting called “Trade. Jobs. Future.” started off with a discussion on the modernisation of the World Trade Organisation and the EU’s role in that process, given the present state of the multilateral trade system, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs said in a statement.

The Croatian minister reiterated support for the European Commission’s efforts to maintain constructive dialogue with the US on issues of common interest in order to find mutually acceptable solutions.

The EU foreign ministers discussed the state of trade negotiations between the EU and its trading partners, the recently completed trade agreements with Japan, Singapore and Vietnam, the progress of negotiations on agreements with Chile, Indonesia, Mexico and Mercosur, and recently initiated negotiations with Australia and New Zealand.

On the margins of the meeting, Pejčinović Burić met with the members of the future EU presidency trio, Romanian Minister of Trade and Entrepreneurship Stefan Oprea and Finnish Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Anne-Mari Virolainen. They talked about plans and priorities of the future presidencies and agreed further consultations, the statement said.
