ttip männchenWednesday, 5 March 2014
12.00 – 14.00 h

The third round of negotiations between the EU and the US has taken place in Washington DC, in December 2013. Talks for a free trade deal might take longer than initially foreseen and major challenges need to be addressed to reach an agreement, but negotiations seem to be on the right track to conclude in what will become the most far-reaching free trade deal ever concluded.

At the same time, negotiations have raised concerns amongst the EU’s and USA’s trade partners on what the consequences will be for their markets. Canada and Mexico, on the one side, and the members of the European Economic Area as well as Turkey, on the other side, have asked to be included in the agreement or consulted on it. However, in view of the complexity of the present deal between the EU and the USA, including more countries could make the deal impossible.

This event aims at discussing the challenges arising from the TTIP for our trade partners and their solutions to face them.
