EU-US trade negotiations must tackle both tariff and non-tariff barriers
Published: 12 October 2018
Policies & Issues: Trade
Transatlantic trade is a growth engine not only for the technology industries but for the entire European economy. The annual value of transatlantic trade for products manufactured by the European technology industries currently stands at 93 billion euro.
Orgalime supports the future EU-US trade negotiations. In our view, it is crucial that the EU and US negotiators work on an agreement addressing both tariff and non-tariff barriers; an agreement only on tariffs will not be sufficient. Quality rather than speed must be the driver of any future EU-US free trade agreement.
