Trade is under fire when it aims at delivering more

"Trade is no longer limited to elimination of tariffs. This is what allows it to increasingly have the objective of promoting fair market conditions that respect and promote high standards", Markus J. Beyrer, Director General of BusinessEurope, said on 31 May at the event  entitled "Trade under Fire: a Transatlantic Dialogue on Challenges and Opportunities" at BusinessEurope. Panellists at the event - moderated by AmCham EU Managing Director Susan Danger - were Myron Brilliant, US Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice-President and Head of International Affairs, Liam Benham, IBM Europe Vice President Government and Regulatory Affairs, Wolfgang Weber, BASF Vice President EU Government Relations. Business communities in the EU and the USA work together to promote a better trade environment: one that recognises the rule of law and our values and interests vis-à-vis common challenges like fragmented global value chains, overcapacity and new forms of protectionism.
