ECIPE Conference: Cities and the Wealth of Nations: What do Global European Cities want from Trade Policy and TTIP?

June 17 2014
Venue: Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, Brussels
Speakers: Gary Campkin, Director of International Strategy, CityUK, Chiara Corraza, Managing Director, Greater Paris Investment Agency (tbc), Maria Rankka, President, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, Denis Redonnet, Head of Trade Strategy, DG Trade, European Commission, Fredrik Erixon, Director, ECIPE
Time: 10:15

Economic value is increasingly produced in global cities that can benefit from specialisation and other factors of grow. Similarly, global cities are increasingly vectors of global trade and commerce – the interface between a larger region and the world market. But we seldom speak about cities in trade policy – or think about cities as economic entities with special interests in trade policy.

Now that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) intends to usher trade policy into the 21st century it is high time get a better understanding of how cities fit into the map of trade policy – and how new opportunities from trade agreements can help cities to build stronger regional development.
