Business Alliance applauds official launch of EU-U.S. Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) at the G8 Summit

The Business Alliance is very pleased to see that at today’s G8 Summit the EU and the U.S. have set course for a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership that will go well beyond anything ever negotiated so far by either sides.

In times of considerable economic pressure on public budgets on both sides of the Atlantic, more trade and investment are the key ingredients to increase the competitiveness of our companies, boost our economies and above all create job opportunities for our citizens, especially for our youth.

As representatives of the transatlantic business community, the Business Alliance stands ready to assist negotiators in this challenging process to help achieve the ambitious outcome that we are envisaging with the launch of negotiations today.

“We are pleased to see that EU trade ministers last week have not lost sight of what is at stake.  We must now keep our determination and ambition in the negotiations that lie ahead of us.  The real work starts now in bringing this process to a successful conclusion, both for our businesses and our citizens,” said Alessandro Barberis President of EUROCHAMBRES.

Gunilla Almgren, President of UEAPME, added: “The European Union has a unique opportunity to boost economic growth by launching negotiations on a trade agreement with the United States, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).  Done properly, the TTIP will give European firms – especially small and medium sized enterprises – much greater access to a huge market, by reducing or even eliminating market access barriers and tariffs.”

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
