DG Trade's contacts with Philip Morris on the EU-Japan Free Trade Agreement JEFTA

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Trade should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Madams & Sirs,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1) a list of meetings of DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Philip Morris in which the Japan-EU Free Trade Agreement JEFTA was discussed (between January 2017 and today, i.e. 14.09.2017);

2) minutes and other reports of these meetings;

3) all correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Philip Morris in which the Japan-EU Free Trade Agreement JEFTA was discussed (between January 2017 and today, i.e. 14.09.2017).

I would appreciate if you could take the Code of Good Administrational Behaviour into account when considering section 1 of this request.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Bank,

We are very sorry for the delay in preparing the reply to your requests. The situation is due to the fact that the unit in charge is processing a large number of requests, and at the same time has experienced major resource constraints, which significantly delayed the processing of the replies.

We are working on your reply and we hope to send it to you as soon as possible.

We apologise again for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours faithfully,
