Economic diplomacy – Meeting between Matthias Fekl and Mounir Mahjoubi, Chair of the National Digital Council (Paris, March 2, 2016)


Matthias Fekl, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad, received Mounir Mahjoubi, the new chair of the National Digital Council.

This meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the EU’s position in the trade negotiations in progress on digital issues.

Established in 2011, the National Digital Council, whose missions were redefined and expanded in 2012, participates in the work of the strategic monitoring committee on trade negotiations, which brings together, on Matthias Fekl’s initiative, all civil society representatives (NGOs, unions, associations, professional and parliamentary federations).
