Europe's trade deals: Are European farmers being short-changed? (part 1)

Description

The EU says its international trade deals are opportunities for European businesses to sell more goods overseas. But what about the impact on farming and farmers in the EU? Should the food we eat be on the same negotiating table as the cars the EU sells? Mercosur, JEFTA, CETA... behind these opaque terms lie deals with Latin America, Japan and Canada. What does Europe's farming sector think about them? Are they the pathway to a land of opportunity, or a Trojan horse letting in unfair competition?

    It's not easy being green... or is it? In this out-and-about edition of Talking Europe, we cross the border to Germany, the country that's been leading a green wave of support for environmentally-concerned political parties around the European Union. Our mission: to look at how well EU countries have been doing on one of the major contributors to carbon emissions: farming.

  • Can Europe switch gears? Growing calls for a 'multi-speed' E.U. (part 1)

    With Putin to the East, Trump to the West and Brexit on the way… The leaders of Germany, Italy and Spain hosted at the Palace of Versailles by France's president. Do the continent's four biggest powers choose the option of putting European integration into overdrive with much closer ties on defense, trade and a common view on borders? When the dust settles, what will the EU look like?

  • EU project in the balance? Reforms and trade deals a hard sell (part 2)

    After Brexit, Brussels is feeling the blowback against globalization much closer to home. Belgium's Wallonia region so far blocking a free trade deal between the EU and Canada. In the grand scheme, a trade agreement with Canada may not seem earth-shattering but that's precisely the point says Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau: If they can't agree on this, what can they agree on? Is it the credibility of the whole European project that's at stake?

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
