Malmström wants new business court

The Swedish EU-Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström (L), wants to establish a new international investment court to solve Mundus Newsconflicts between countries and companies. DN Ekonomi reports that she is taking this initiative together with Canada. Malmström believes there is a need for a permanent international court to solve conflicts surrounding private investments. The idea is to avoid large legal fights, like the one waged about the free trade agreement between the EU and the USA, TTIP. “I am pushing for this idea, among other places right here in Davos, where representatives for many countries and companies are collected. The EU stands behind this, just like Canada,” said Cecilia Malmström.
