Wednesday, 19 June 2013

On June 19, 2013, The European Institute welcomed The Honorable Daniel Caspary, International Trade Spokesman for the EPP Group in the European Parliament and Member of the European Parliament’s Committee on International Trade, to discuss the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and assess the prospects for ultimate ratification by the European Parliament. A strong proponent of the historic initiative, Mr. Caspary called for a truly comprehensive agreement, a tight negotiation time line so as to finalize the agreement by the end of 2014, and urged business leaders from both sides of the Atlantic to help build popular support. Michael Smart, Vice President at Rock Creek Global Advisors moderated the lively discussion.
