E-004086/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Malmström on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-004086/2018

Negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) were paused at the end of 2016, without setting a timetable for a resumption of the negotiations. A number of factors affected TTIP's prospects, including significant differences of view at the end of the previous US administration.

As the Honourable Member will be aware, on 25 July 2018 President Juncker and President Trump issued a Joint Statement in which the EU and the United States (US) pledge to work together on trade related matters. This is a new process, which is unrelated to TTIP. The Executive Working Group will look at the strictly defined scope of the Joint Statement, which includes industrial tariffs, a process of voluntary regulatory cooperation and cooperation on the reform of the World Trade Organisation.

During this process both sides committed not to take additional trade restrictive measures and engaged to resolve the steel and aluminim tariffs and retaliatory tariffs.
