Future of EU-US trade talks: The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

03 March - 04 March 2015, Brussels (DG TRADE)


The European Journalism Centre, in co-operation with the European Commission?s DG Trade, invites 25 journalists from the EU28 to take stock of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations to date and to assess progress made so far. This high-level event will take place in Brussels on 3 and 4 March 2015, after the eight round of the negotiations will have been concluded in Brussels in the first week of February 2015.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, aims to remove a wide range of barriers to bilateral commerce. The EU and the US launched the negotiations in June 2013 and the aim is to stimulate more trade and investment, and, in the process, to produce more economic growth and employment. It is potentially the biggest trade deal in the world, promoting sustainable economic growth, creating quality jobs, and foster financial stability in both the EU and the US.

The seminar shall take a closer look at the current state of play of the TTIP negotiations, the economic benefits of the EU-US trade deal, the Investor to State Dispute Settlement procedure, or ISDS, as well as give a general overview of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the EU and Canada, or CETA.

The journalists will have a unique opportunity to meet and receive first-hand information from all of the central EU actors involved in the TTIP negotiations, including the EU commissioner for Trade, Cecilia Malmstr?m.

The event is exclusively catered for specialist and expert journalists in the field of EU affairs.
