Seminar: Free trade and investment agreements & food and health

October 8, 2014 - 12:00-16:00

On October 8th from noon to 4pm we ask how the planned trade and investment agreements could impact on food and health in Finland, in so-called developing countries and in emerging economies. Could the planned agremeent on services (TiSA) privatise drinking water and public health care and limit policy regulation even when done in the interest of public health and environment? How consistent EU is demanding removal of import duties and abolishing its own subsidies?
