The Details

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to strengthen the competitiveness of the transatlantic economy and improve the health, lives, and economic opportunity of individuals on both sides of the Atlantic.

The E.U. and the U.S. trading relationship is the largest in the world, exchanging about $1 trillion in goods and services every year. TTIP strengthens this bond, boosting both economies and adding to the more than 13 million American and European jobs already supported by transatlantic trade and investment. TTIP would also add nearly €100 billion to the world economy.

Enhancing the European-American trade relationship would have a positive impact on the lives of people on both sides of the Atlantic. TTIP promotes greater compatibility and transparency of transatlantic regulations and standards, incentivizing innovators in health care and other sectors to create the products that transform day-to-day life. It also aligns E.U. and U.S. regulations and standards to make trade easier and more efficient, while maintaining high levels of safety and quality.

TTIP marks the next chapter of the EU-U.S. relationship, creating better trade and better lives for millions of people.
