ALDE – Marietje Schaake ALDE MEP explains the EU US trade agreement

Marietje Schaake,  the spokesperson for the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) on TTIP:

“The EU and the US are soon to embark on negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

These ambitions of the EU and the US mark the start of a new season for trade and investment, and the ‘trans-Atlantic alliance’ position in the world. Soon the current political momentum will shift towards the actual negotiations which are due to start after the summer. It will be a highly technical process. It is time to step down from the sky-high ambitions, and to assess the hard work ahead, if we want to live up to the promise of transatlantic bloom.”
