On 4 February 2010, Mr Karel De Gucht gave a lecture at the College of Europe in Bruges, emphasising the importance of free trade for continuous economic recovery after the financial crisis of 2009, the utility of concluding the Doha round in the prospective of protectionist threats, and how the new role of the European Parliament in co-legislation could strengthen the legitimacy of trade policies.
The year 2009 has been a remarkable for the EU. Allegedly, it moved towards more intense cooperation between heads of state and a weakening of the Commission. However, we also saw the appointment of first European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy and EU ‘Minister’ of Foreign Affairs, Catherine Ashton.
