For this event The Washington Post and European Voice are joining forces to provide the latest intelligence from both sides of the Atlantic on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), one of the most ambitious trade agreements ever.

While growth in emerging market economies is slowing, the west is seeking regional trade agreements such as the TTIP between the EU and the United States to stimulate global economic growth. This partnership, if it is agreed, would increase global GDP and create opportunities for new jobs. The economic potential of this agreement is huge as the US and the EU together account for around $30/€22 trillion in annual output, roughly half of world output and trade.

At this event we will examine the benefits, challenges and global impact of the agreement, as well as the alternatives to the TTIP if it is not agreed. Some of the questions to be addressed include:

 What is the latest state of negotiations?

 What are the likely obstacles to an agreement? Will there be so many exemptions and opt-outs that the agreement will have limited impact?

 What is the future of transatlantic trade if the TTIP is not agreed?

 How will TTIP affect the BRICs economy and world trade?

The Future of Transatlantic Trade will gather over 150 key policy makers and international business leaders from both continents to discuss and share their insight on the political, economic, social, and global business impact of an integrated transatlantic market place.
