The transatlantic trade and investment partnership remains a central artery of the global economy, key to jobs and prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic and with trade in goods and services between the EU and the US worth over USD 1 trillion per year before the COVID-19 pandemic. The investment relationship is also unique, as the EU and the US invest more in each other’s markets than in all other markets combined. The relationship builds on strong fundamentals but has also undergone changes and been subject to important bilateral tensions over the last years.
It is in this context that the EU will need to engage with the US administration coming out of the elections on 3 November. It will continue to be a relationship marked by its sheer size, current and potential tensions as well as the need to also design a positive bilateral trade agenda.
Rupert Schlegelmilch, Acting Deputy Director-General in the Directorate General for Trade, responsible for EU-US trade relations, will give an overview on the state of play and prospects of EU-US trade relations and engage in exchanges with civil society organisations.
