2016 a decisive year for TTIP

In Davos, BusinessEurope President Emma Marcegaglia discussed with US Chamber President Tom Donohue how to advance negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and ensure a political agreement during President Obama’s term. Both EU and US businesses want an ambitious outcome, effectively providing companies on both sides of the Atlantic new market opportunities. This needs full commitment from EU and US negotiators to address now sensitive issues like access to public procurement or financial services regulation. We also need rapid exchange of negotiating proposals that are still missing. Business will stay committed, actively supporting all efforts to bring our economies closer together, creating new prospects for trade and investment by promoting a modern and ambitious set of rules.
