Press release

The European Metalworkers' Federation (EMF) and the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA)
oppose the conditions for Non-Agricultural Market Access (NAMA) proposed within the framework of the current WTO ‘Doha’ Round. These conditions, specified by the NAMA secretariat this week, risk undermining the
competitiveness of the EU industries, putting pressure on production costs and employment.
