Cecilia_Malmström2On March 6th IE will host Ms. Cecilia Malmström, European Commissioner for Trade, for a discussion with our students and faculty on the much debated Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the trade agenda and priorities of Europe.

Since assuming office in November 2014 as the new Commissioner for Trade under the Juncker Commission Ms. Malmström has been leading the negotiations of the TTIP with the objective of reaching a balanced and reasonable agreement with the U.S. that respects Europe’s safety, health, social and data protection standards, and Europe’s cultural diversity.

Previously, Ms. Malmström served as European Commissioner for Home Affairs (2010-2014) and as Minister for EU Affairs in the Swedish Government (2006-2010). She was Vice-President of Folkpartiet (Swedish Liberal Party) from 2007 to 2010, Member of Folkpartiet Party Executive (2001-2010), and Member of the European Parliament (1999-2006).
