Jobs and growth through a transatlantic economic and trade partnership - BusinessEurope contribution to the work of the High Level Working Group on Jobs and Growth
On 20 March 2012, BusinessEurope organised a transatlantic conference at the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC with a number of its national members, US business representatives and other business groups. A brochure was presented which is aimed at contributing to the work of the 'High Level Working Group on Jobs and Growth'. It highlights various economic benefits of liberalising trade and investment across the Atlantic, emphasising several issues such as industrial trade, regulatory convergence, services, investment, intellectual property rights and public procurement. A transatlantic economic and trade pact would generate substantial economic benefits for both the EU and the USA in terms of growth and jobs. This should encourage leaders to take bold steps and start negotiations to liberalise trade and investment between our economies.
