The next round of negotiations for a free trade agreement between the EU and Indonesia start today in Solo, Indonesia. Civil society organisations from Europe and Indonesia, including Friends of the Earth Europe and Friends of the Earth Indonesia, will meet in parallel to discuss the consequences of a potential agreement.

The US-EU trade deal and EU-Canada trade deals are Trojan horse treaties; dangerous deals that put big business ahead of our society, health and environment.

 

Together we can stop these Trojan horse treaties unravelling our hard-won standards, and act to put people and the planet before profits.
