💬🗨️ With their questions, EU civil society members - NGOs, trade unions and businesses - have covered numerous areas of discussion, including environment, labour, details of the 15-point implementation plan, and monitoring of progress & positive impact in third countries. pic.twitter.com/y4kK5kldUd
💬🗨️ Civil society representatives @joswabe, @Cecile_Toubeau & @Steph_ghislain asked us for more attention to environmental issues: We're working on it! The difficulty here is that we can't rely on structures like @ILO but only on a myriad of disparate Environmental Agreements.
