In 2010, the European Free Trade Association celebrated its 50th anniversary. The EFTA Convention entered into force on 3 May 1960. In connection with this milestone in EFTA's existence and the 15th anniversary of the EEA Agreement, which entered into force in 1994, EFTA organised a seminar in November 2009 in Geneva, entitled Partners in Progress. A book including material from the seminar, called EFTA 1960 – 2010: Elements of 50 Years of European History, was presented on 3 May in Geneva and on 5 May in Brussels. Commemorative events also took place in several of EFTA's free trade partner countries as well as during the EFTA summer ministerial meeting in Iceland in June. On the occasion of the winter ministerial meeting in Geneva in November, Switzerland held a special seminar on world trade. You can order the book here.
