Annual Report 2008

48th Annual Report of the European Free Trade Association, 2008. 2008 has been a productive year for the European Free Trade Association. Significant progress was made in EFTA’s two core activities: the European Economic Area and the organisation’s expanding network of free trade relations. The results include securing the participation of the EEA EFTA States in REACH (the EU Chemical Regulation) and the signing of free trade agreements (FTAs) with Canada and Colombia.
