ECIPE Afternoon Seminar: The future of services liberalisation: Conversation with Bob Vastine

February 27 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: J. Robert Vastine, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 16:00

Global trade negotiations are once again focusing on services liberalisation after a few decades of detours. The current wave of FTAs – notably with TPP, TTIP, TISA and EU-Japan – are driven by prospects of services and investment market access and next-generation disciplines.

However, services has always been a point of contention in trade negotiations. Can we expect substantial liberalisation in the major services markets? What are the dynamics of TPP and TTIP? Will TISA succeed GATS  – and what about China?


Join a conversation on the future of services liberalisation with J. Robert Vastine, Senior Industry Fellow at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, and a member of ECIPE Advisory Board. Mr Vastine led the global advocacy on services for decades as the President of the Coalition of Service Industries (CSI) and the Chairman of the official Industry Trade Advisory Committee for International Trade in Services (ITAC10). He has also held several leadership positions in the Senate and the Treasury.


The meeting is moderated by Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, and will be followed by a wine reception.
