Marie-Pierre Vedrenne points out the importance of empowering the European Union with defence tools in its international trade relations: "Ambitious rules are being established that are also in line with our objectives of the European Green Pact and this must become a reality",

MoDem MEP also concludes that: "This is a strong message, which also fits in with the trade policy review. There are very strong expectations, both from our companies and from civil society. We need to show that we are using all possible levers".
