TTIP dialogue with social partners

Swedish Enterprise (the Swedish business confederation) and the Swedish trade unions LO organised an event in Stockholm on 31 May to encourage an open exchange of views between business, trade unions and consumers on several aspects of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. The participants from the EU and the USA discussed what TTIP can bring to businesses, workers and consumers, how it can be used to promote common values and standards, influence global rules and enhance inclusive growth. European Commissioner Cecilia Malmström and USTR Froman were present: it was a good opportunity to reaffirm the importance of having an ambitious agreement that can deliver positive results for a wider number of stakeholders. BusinessEurope chaired the session dealing with trade and goods and services and the impact on jobs.
