The 3rd annual All DAGs meeting will take place on Monday 17 April 2023 09:30-12:30 in JDE62 (and via Interactio).
As the Domestic Advisory Groups (DAGs) are approaching the end of the current mandate, the objective of the event is to take stock of past challenges and achievements, including preliminary results for some of the DAGs' desk studies. It will also give the opportunity to do a benchmarking exercise to prepare the new mandate for the DAGs.
Topics to be covered will include: labour and environmental agendas, partnerships, and going beyond sustainable development chapters. This will be a strategic time for feedback and preparation for the new mandate, with presentations by the EU DAG chairs and discussions between all EU DAG members. The meeting will be featuring the European Commission's Chief Trade Enforcement Officer (CTEO) Denis Redonnet.
