“The EU-US free trade agreement is a game-changer”, says the ECR Group

Jennifer Baker is joined by James Holtum, Spokesman for the ECR Group, to discuss the EU-US free trade agreement.

On Tuesday, 4th of June, the ECR Group is promoting a public hearing on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), with the presence of the US Ambassador William Kennard, representatives from Transatlantic Trade organisations and the chief EU negotiator Garcia Bercero.

Regarding the exclusion of audiovisual services of the table of negotiations, the ECR Group argues this is a mistake. According to James Holtum, the Parliament should not be trying to protect any particular industry at this point of the negotiations.
