The 14th round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations between the EU and the US will take place from 11 to 15 July in Brussels. This third round in six months continues the very intensive period of talks which started at the beginning of this year. The negotiators will discuss all three pillars of TTIP: market access for EU and US firms, regulatory cooperation, and rules of trade. The EU will submit proposals in a number of areas, such as regulatory cooperation, digital trade and energy and raw materials. The focus of the round will be on the more technical work of consolidating as many texts as possible and bringing positions closer together.
The EU is negotiating an ambitious and balanced trade and investment deal with the US. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will create new trade and investment opportunities for companies, big and small, and new jobs. For consumers, it will cut prices and widen choice, while keeping the EU's high standards for consumer protection, social rights and environmental rules.
