Dear Madams and Sirs,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I would like to request:

1) a list of meetings of DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and her Cabinet) and representatives of individual companies and/or industry federations such as BusinessEurope, the European Services Forum (ESF), the Federation of German Industries (BDI) and/or law firms such as Freshfields, White & Case, Herbert Smith and Sidley, in which the EU's foreign investment policy was discussed (since March 2017). The list should include the names of the individuals and organisations attending; the date; and any agendas / minutes / notes produced;

2) minutes and other reports of these meetings;

3) all correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and her Cabinet) and representatives of companies, business associations and law firms, in which the EU's foreign investment policy was discussed (since March 2017).

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

I would be very grateful if you would release documents when they are retrieved, rather than waiting until the full reply is ready.

As this was an issue in previous requests, allow me to specify what I mean by "EU foreign investment policy" in my request:

* EU negotiations of investment protection provisions, for example, with Canada, Japan, Singapore, China, the ASEAN countries and Mexico
* the Multilateral Investment Court project
* the EU's role in the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT)
* the ECJ's Achmea ruling from April 2018 and its implications

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Pia Eberhardt

Dear Ms Eberhardt,

 

We refer to your request for access to documents registered on 02/10/2018
under the reference number GestDem 2018/5134.

 

Your application is currently being handled. However, due to the heavy
workload on a large number of requests, we will not be in a position to
complete the handling of your application within the time limit of 15
working days, which expires today on 23/10/2018.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in

public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 15/11/2018.

Yours sincerely,
