TTIP: Civil society must be heard, stresses INTA Committee Chair Bernd Lange

In an exclusive interview with viEUws, Bernd Lange, Chair of the European Parliament’s International Trade Committee (INTA), discusses the trade priorities for the new parliamentary term with Lénaïc Vaudin d’Imécourt – EU Trade Insights Editor.

On 7 July, Bernd Lange was elected as Chair of the International Trade Committee which expanded to 41 members. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the trade deal between the European Union and Canada (CETA), the EU-Singapore trade agreement, as well as the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) are among the top priorities of the new INTA Committee. Regarding the TTIP negotiations, Lange hopes that the European Commission will take the results of the consultations into account and keep the investor-to-state dispute settlement mechanism (ISDS) out of the TTIP.
