Dombrovskis in charge of EU trade policy

BRUSSELS. In October, the European Parliament (EP) followed the decision of President Ursula von der Leyen to hand the responsibility for trade policy to the executive vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis. The previous Trade Commissioner Phil Hogan had stepped down after breaching the Irish coronavirus regulations. At a hearing in the EP Trade Committee, Dombrovskis announced his intention to work towards a more sustainable trade policy and against unfair trade practices by third countries.
