EU Newsbrief: EU-US Conclude Successful 2nd TTIP Round

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The EU and US today concluded the second round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations.   

Continuing from where they left off in the first round in July, negotiators meeting in Brussels discussed investment rules, trade in services, energy and raw materials, as well as a range of regulatory issues, including regulatory coherence, technical barriers to trade and sectoral approaches. 

"We are making good and steady progress across the broad range of issues we need to tackle to make our transatlantic business environment more efficient and effective whilst preserving the protections and rights already in place for consumers," said EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht.   

Looking ahead to the third round of talks taking place in Washington, D.C. during the week of December 16, EU Ambassador to the U.S. João Vale de Almeida said: "We are going ahead with our talks full speed. We need to keep up the momentum and keep a strong focus on our goal of creating jobs and growth for Americans and Europeans."
