Parliament's recommendations on TTIP talks

02-06-2015

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is currently being negotiated between the EU and the US as a comprehensive and ambitious trade agreement aiming to liberalise trade and investments as well as foster regulatory cooperation. Public opinion in some EU Member States shows fears related to investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) clauses in TTIP and, more generally, the impact of the future agreement on states’ regulatory freedom in the areas of the environment, consumer and labour law and data protection. The INTA Committee has adopted draft recommendations on the TTIP negotiations, due to be discussed during the June plenary.
