The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a trade agreement that the European Union (EU) and US have been negotiating since 2013. Several aspects of TTIP are highly technical, some are very sensitive for specific industries affected by the agreement, while others have already been taken off the negotiating table. As a result, TTIP negotiations have become the source of criticism and debate amongst diverse stakeholders. In late August 2016 Germany and France expressed their doubts as to the timing of the negotiation and the prospect of its successful conclusion. In this context, the objective of this panel discussion is to address a series of questions related to TTIP content, state of the negotiations, meaning for international trade and implications for the EU.
