Question for written answer E-013649-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Matt Carthy (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Three million signatures against the TTIP
 Answer in writing 

On 5 October 2015, trade ministers in the Pacific region reached agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade liberalisation pact that will affect 40% of the world economy.

On the same day, a European citizens' initiative that attracted the support of over 3 million people was presented to the EU institutions, relaying the desire to see an end to the negotiations with the United States on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

How does the Commission plan to incorporate this overwhelmingly large statement of opposition into its future trade plans?
