Invitation to a Roundtable: Is there a Case for a Transatlantic Investment Treaty?

October 13 2011
Venue: GMF, Résidence Palace, Rue de la Loi 155,1040 Brussels
Speakers: Peter ChasenPatrick Messerlin
Time: 14:30

Investment policy in the European Union is about to become centralized and member states are currently debating the shape and design of Europe’s new investment policy. Is it also time now to consider a Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) between the EU and the United States? The EU has already set out investment agendas in negotiations over bilateral trade agreements (e.g. with Canada), and at some point in the future it will need to decide a way forward for BIT negotiations with many other countries. What would be the conditions for a good BIT between Europe and the United States?
