The Council discussed the status and the way forward concerning EFTA’s third-country relations, exchanging thoughts and perspectives for the midterm, recognising inter alia that the continued presence of COVID-19 caused most meetings to be held through videoconference for the immediate future.
Delegates then focussed on the upcoming Ministerial meeting to be held through videoconference on 27 October 2020 and on the exchange with the EFTA advisory bodies during which crucial issues such as e-commerce, trade and sustainable development and transparency in trade negotiations are expected to be discussed.
The priorities of the Swiss Chair for the second half of 2020.
