Fact of the day: The U.S. and EU economies together account for nearly half of global GDP and about one-third of all international trade. This translates to $2.7 billion in goods and services flowing each day and $4 trillion invested in each other's economies, supporting more than 13 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic.
The proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is an ambitious, comprehensive and high-standard trade and investment agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and the EU. The successful negotiation of the new TTIP is projected to create a market force of 800 million consumers and the potential for billions of dollars in new exports and thousands of new jobs in the United States and Europe, helping not just large companies and workers, but the small and medium enterprises that make up the backbone of both economies.
The Chamber's International Business Council, in partnership with Baker Donelson, invites you to learn more about TTIP on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. A panel discussion featuring Great Britain and Northern Ireland Consul General Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford and Consul General Christoph Sander of Germany will highlight U.S. and EU trade relations and offer an update on TTIP. For companies interested in U.S.-EU affairs, this is a no-miss event! Register here.
