In a new report, the Transatlantic Task Force on Trade and Investment presents new and ambitious initiatives for transatlantic leadership in global economic and trade policy.
This Task Force started its work last spring and is now releasing its final report. In the past year, a group of senior experts from America and Europe has discussed how the two can forge a stronger transatlantic relationship to continue to lead global trade and investment policy in the near future.
Closer bilateral transatlantic economic cooperation, the Task Force argues, can promote economic growth and jobs, and at the same time spur further multilateral cooperation and trade liberalisation, thereby strengthening the WTO.
ECIPE and GMF cordially invite you to a seminar with Ewa Björling, Swedish Minister for trade, Jim Kolbe, former member of U.S. Congress (co-chairs of the Task Force) and Peter Balas, Deputy Director General, DG Trade.
The presentation of the recommendations of the Transatlantic Task Force by Fredrik Erixon, Director ECIPE and Bruce Stokes, Senior Transatlantic Fellow, GMF, will be followed by a panel debate on transatlantic leadership in trade policy, involving Task Force members Erika Mann, Head Brussels office at Facebook and Executive Vice President of CCIA, Patrick Messerlin, Professor of Economics at Sciences Po and Director of GEM and Hugo Paemen, Former EU Ambassador to the US and Senior Advisor for Hogan Lovells
