“Financial services should be included in TTIP negotiations”, argues European Commission
In an exclusive interview with viEUws, Nadia Calviño, Deputy Director General, DG Internal Market, talks to John Rega, Chief Correspondent MLex FS.
Nadia Calviño states that in the area of derivatives the states of negotiations between the US and the European Union is excellent since the two main economic partners are particularly close in the field of financial services. Therefore, she argues that “financial services should be included in the TTIP negotiations“. In this regard she also points out that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is more than a usual free-trade agreement but also has the purpose to make regulations on both sides of the Atlantic more consistent and efficient.
