The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) negotiations, launched by the United States and the EU in June 2013, provide an opportunity for the United States to correct these imbalances. Tariff reductions in the EU could put U.S. exports on a more level playing field with other suppliers. Discussions related to regulatory barriers, in particular unjustified health and safety measures, could provide new access for U.S. exports. The T-TIP would also improve opportunities for EU exports, benefitting producers and consumers in both regions.
