What is the TTIP?
On 17 June 2013, the European Commission announced the start of negotiations for a far-reaching trade deal, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) or Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). A sixth negotiation round is planned in July 2014 in Brussels. The TTIP is to liberalise trade and investment between the EU and the US, which together make up 40% of global economic output. What is called “the biggest trade deal in the world” is aimed to be finalized by the end of 2014.
