ECIPE Lunch Seminar: Is the United States poised for success, or failure, in its on-going trade-liberalizing negotiations with the Trans-Pacific Partnership countries and the European Union?

June 12 2013
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Greg Rushford, Fredrik Erixon
Time: 12:30

A busy trade agenda lies ahead for the United States. After years of relative inactivity in the trade field, the U.S. is now seeking to anticipate events while engaging on several fronts. The on-going negotiations on a Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with South-east Asian and Latin American countries illustrate the so-called Asian pivot in current U.S. trade politics. At the same time, President Obama is also reaching out to Europe. Together, the U.S. and the EU are embarking on a major trade policy initiative as the launch of negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Agreement is likely to be imminent.

The expectations are high and the time schedule is ambitious. But will top political leaders summon the political will to overcome the many political obstacles that could stand in the way? Is the U.S. going to lead the way with comprehensive trade agreements that accommodate 21th century trade concerns? Can these initiatives play a constructive role in re-integrating the multilateral trading system, or will they cause further fragmentation?

Examining the real motivations behind the TPP and the TTIP initiatives, veteran Washington D.C. journalist Greg Rushford will share some insider perspectives on what is going on in the TPP talks and the forthcoming TTIP negotiations. Greg Rushford tracks U.S. trade politics for the Rushford Report. He is also a contributor to several outside publications including ForeignPolicy.com, the Wall Street Journal Asia, and the Milken Institute Review.

ECIPE cordially invites you to a lunch discussion on some of the political economy issues that are likely to come into play in the forthcoming U.S.-EU talks and in the TPP negotiations. 



A sandwich lunch will be served at the event
