TTIP – economic growth, liberalism and democracy
Last week, the 12th round of negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the United States and the European Union took place in Brussels.
TTIP is a great opportunity for the U.S. and EU to create growth and jobs as well as further investments across the Atlantic. The ambition is an agreement unprecedented in scope and depth. Even though tariffs on Transatlantic trade are already fairly modest compared to many other regions, there are still considerable gains to be made by a further reduction or complete elimination.
Denmark is among the strongest TTIP supporters in the European Union. In fact, labour unions and employer organisations as well as a large majority of the population are united in the support for TTIP.
