Discussing the prospects of the transatlantic cooperation

“The digital economy is a good example of a field where close cooperation between the EU and the US holds high potential for growth, jobs and innovation”, said BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer at a lunch event jointly organised with IBM on 10 October on the occasion of IBM’s Chair Ginni Rometty visit to Brussels. Beyrer highlighted that to counter the general scepticism towards trade and globalisation as well as the protectionist tendencies still on the rise, the EU and the US must further discuss the perspectives of their future cooperation. The rationale for a deep transatlantic economic relation remains strong. Developing common approaches on matters of common interest, including towards major trading partners like China, should also be further explored.
