Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP)

On July 12, 2013, the United States and the European Union began the first round of negotiations in pursuit of a comprehensive, trans-Atlantic free trade agreement. The EU is the world’s largest importer of agricultural products and food. But despite the continued growth of this market, U.S. market share is shrinking. The ability of U.S. exporters to penetrate the European market remains constrained by tariff and non-tariff trade barriers. The negotiation of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) offers a major opportunity to address these unjustified barriers.
