SOURCE Delegation of the European Union to the United States
WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wrapping up the third round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks today, EU Chief Negotiator Ignacio Garcia Bercero stressed that the United States and the European Union "remain on track to deliver an ambitious trade and investment deal which will boost our economies, deliver growth and, more importantly, create jobs for both Europeans and Americans at a time when they're most needed."
During their week-long negotiations in Washington, D.C., negotiators discussed all the topics they want to see covered in a comprehensive trade agreement, and they received significant input from stakeholders. Progress was made on the three core parts of the TTIP - market access, regulatory aspects and rules. This will also be the focus of the next round of talks expected in March 2014.
Mr Garcia Bercero said that any deal reached between the European Union and the United States would uphold "the highest standards of consumer, environment, health and labor protection."
