MLex to boost its coverage of trade policy and enforcement in Europe

MLex Market Insight is pleased to announce it has expanded its global trade reporting team with the recruitment of Joanna Sopinska, a highly experienced trade reporter, to boost its coverage of trade policy and enforcement in Europe.

Sopinska will join MLex in Brussels in the first quarter of 2017, working alongside our existing European trade team of Poppy Bullock in Brussels and Jennifer Freedman in Geneva. She will join MLex from EU Trade Insights where she has been trade editor since September 2015. Prior to that, Sopinska spent nine years at Europolitics writing on trade and regulatory issues. She speaks English, Polish, French and Russian.

"We're extremely pleased to have recruited someone of the calibre of Joanna to our team," said MLex Editor in Chief Robert McLeod. "While our trade coverage has long been highly regarded by practitioners, reporting on the challenges facing the global trade system requires even greater investment.

MLex's global network of trade reporters track trade policy, agreements and enforcement from offices in Brussels, Geneva, Washington, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul and Sao Paolo. Our reach provides unparalleled coverage of these issues which are critical for business and for society at large.

"I'm looking forward to joining the global trade team at MLex and to contributing to its success with my solid experience and enthusiasm," said Sopinska. "With Europe bracing itself for Brexit negotiations and the new President in the United States threatening to overturn trade agreements, trade policy has never been more important."

"I'm excited by the prospect of reporting together with my new MLex colleagues on these and other trade-related issues."
