Seminar: Services in TTIP

July 17 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Bob Vastine, Pascal Kerneis, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 12:00

The EU and the US account for 40% of global trade in services, and one of the main rationale of TTIP was the prospects of raising the standards in services liberalisation. The recent news reports seem to suggest that any progress is yet to be delivered – despite the strong interests for comprehensible results on both sides of the Atlantic.

ECIPE in co-operation with ESF and Georgetown CBPP

In conjunction with the sixth round of negotiations services schedules, we cordially invite to a debate on Services in TTIP – what are the issues and the politics? What should the transatlantic model of services liberalisation look like?


The debate will be led by two leading services experts  – Mr Bob Vastine, Senior Industry Fellow at the Center for Business and Public Policy at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and a member of the US Dept of Commerce/USTR Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Services and Finance Industries (ITAC10); Mr Pascal Kerneis, Managing Director of European Services Forum and a member of the TTIP Advisory Group of the European Commission. The discussions will be moderated by Mr. Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, director of ECIPE. 

Sandwiches and refreshments will be served

The registration for this event is now closed.
