Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

The European-American Chamber of Commerce in the United States, Inc.
is pleased to announce a European-American Economic Forum on

 Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

In February 2013, U.S. President Barack Obama, European Council President Herman van Rompuy and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso issued a statement announcing the launch of negotiations for a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Given the existing weight and critical importance of the transatlantic economic relationship, this partnership will further promote transatlantic trade and investment, and will inevitably impact global trade policy.
