Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement

The negotiations were halted by President Donald Trump,[2] who then launched a trade dispute with the EU. Trump and the EU declared a ceasefire in July 2018 and resumed talks, which appeared similar to the TTIP. [3] On 15 April 2019, the negotiations were declared «obsolete and more relevant» by the European Commission. [4] Negotiations between trade agents on both sides of the Atlantic have been ongoing for well over 12 months. At the end of December, a third round of talks took place in Washington, during which the two sides still hoped to reach an agreement. Following the December negotiations, the EU`s chief negotiator, Ignacio Garcia Bercero, said in a press release that both sides expected to quickly find a roadmap in areas where the agreement could save consumers and businesses money. However, Mr. Garcia Bercero has done much to reiterate that the agreement itself is not a matter of deregulation. He also stressed that neither the United States nor the EU intends to reduce their standards for consumers, the environment, health, work or data protection, nor to limit their regulatory autonomy.

In 2016, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union came into force on an interim basis. It is one of the most important agreements signed in recent years and many are waiting for a similar agreement between the United States and the European Union. The draft EU text on trade and sustainable development was also sent to the Guardian in July 2016. [108] The Project of 23 June 2016, described as «restricted», reveals new gaps in the G20`s commitment to phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies by 2025. The IMF estimates these subsidies at $10 million per minute worldwide[109] and G7 ministers meeting in Japan promised to eliminate them in May 2016. [110] However, the project states that «this end of supply may take into account security of supply.» [108] The Guardian believes that this passage could be open to abuse and will be used to slow the exit of subsidies. The European Commission says TTIP would boost the EU economy by 120 billion euros, the US economy by 90 billion euros and the rest of the world by 100 billion euros. [7] According to Anu Bradford, a law professor at Columbia Law School, and Thomas J. Bollyky of the Council on Foreign Relations, TTIP aims to «liberalize one-third of world trade» and create millions of new jobs. [8] An article in Dean Baker`s Guardian of the AMERICAN think tank Center for Economic and Policy Research[10][11] argued that the economic benefits per household would be relatively small. [12] According to a report by the European Parliament, the impact on working conditions ranges from job gains to job losses, depending on the economic model and assumptions used in the forecasts. [13] Although the future of this agreement is still uncertain, the US market remains attractive to European companies.

AsD Group recently opened an agency in the United States, in the heart of San Francisco, to facilitate business development in the United States. The Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), also known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) or PTCI in France, is an agreement for the creation of the world`s largest free trade area. On 10 October, the House of Representatives Energy and Energy Subcommittee convened a group of ambassadors and ministers of energy and trade from Europe, Asia and the Caribbean to discuss the geopolitical impact of the United States.
