The 3rd annual All DAGs meeting took place in a hybrid format on Monday 17 April 2023 at the EESC.
As the Domestic Advisory Groups (DAGs) approached the end of the 2020-2023 mandate, the objective of the event was to take stock of past challenges and achievements, including preliminary results for some of the DAGs' desk studies. It gave the opportunity to do a benchmarking exercise to prepare the next DAG mandates.
Topics covered included: labour and environmental agendas, partnerships, and going beyond sustainable development chapters. This was a strategic time of feedback and preparation with presentations by the EU DAG chairs and discussions between all EU DAG members. The meeting featured the European Commission's Chief Trade Enforcement Officer (CTEO) Denis Redonnet and Maria Martin-Prat, Deputy Director General DG TRADE.
