Good for Democracy

Greenpeace Netherlands has released 205 pages of previously undisclosed chapters from secret talks for an EU-Japan trade agreement (known as JEFTA). Greater public access to JEFTA negotiating documents is good for democracy and will enable more balanced and transparent public participation by experts, politicians, civil society and the media. 

The European Commission will be delighted, as it has frequently highlighted the importance of democratic principles and transparency.
