On Thursday, September 22, the International Business Department of the Deree School of Business, in collaboration with the German political foundation and think-tank Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), held an event to foster the critical examination, analysis, and discussion of the infamous TTIP negotiations.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a trade agreement that the United States (US) and the European Union (EU) have been negotiating since 2013. Several aspects of TTIP are highly technical, some are very sensitive for specific industries affected by the agreement such as agriculture, while others have already been taken off the negotiating table. As a result, TTIP negotiations have become the source of criticism and debate amongst diverse stakeholders.
In late August 2016, Germany and France expressed their doubts as to the timing of the negotiation and the prospect of its successful conclusion. In this context, the panel discussion held on campus addressed a series of questions related to TTIP content, state of the negotiations, meaning for international trade and implications for the EU.
