Next round of EU-US trade talks to take place next week in New York

The 15th round of EU-US negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement will take place in New York City, from 3 to 7 October. The aim of this round is to make as much progress as possible in all areas of the talks, in particular in the regulatory cooperation and rules areas. Both EU and US chief negotiators will take a break from the talks to brief civil society, including NGOs and trade unions as well as business and consumer organisations, on the progress of negotiations. The event will take place on Wednesday, 5 October. In line with the Commission’s transparency policy, a detailed progress report will be issued in all EU official languages after the round. A closing conference call by the EU and US chief negotiators will take place on Friday 7 October. Registration closes at midnight (Brussels time) on 30 September.
