Briefing with Peter Chase (U.S. Chamber of Commerce)
A joint event with Atlantische Intitiative, Aspen Institute, and Young Transatlantic Inititative featured speaker Peter Chase of the US Chamber of Commerce on the issue of TTIP and regulatory cooperation. Discussions concluded with ideas on ways to better inform the debate on TTIP, as well as insights into the differences between US and EU regulatory systems currently, such as the auditing and oversight capabilties of both trading blocs, and ways of currently measuring compliance within an industry.
The negotiations towards the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have caused a heated debate on both sides of the Atlantic. In an effort to foster a better-informed and thorough debate about opportunities and challenges with regard to transatlantic free trade, the Atlantische Initiative, Aspen Institute and Initiative junger Transatlantiker / Young Transatlantic Initiative hosted a joint event on ‘TTIP: Regulatory Coherence and Cooperation.'
The event featured Mr. Peter Chase, Vice-President for Europe at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), and was attended by twenty participants from a broad range of professional backgrounds. Mr. Chase made a strong case for a deep and comprehensive free trade agreement (FTA) plus investment protection chapter between the European Union and the United States of America that would lower tariffs, mutually recognize high standards and therefore reinforce the foundation for a strong transatlantic alliance.
