On June 17, 2013, President Obama, together with European Council President Van Rompuy, European Commission President Barroso, and UK Prime Minister Cameron, announced that the United States and the European Union (EU) would launch negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement. After a first preparatory cycle of three negotiation rounds in 2013, the negotiating parties gathered again for an entire week in Brussels from March 10 until March 14, 2014, to discuss the substance of the agreement.
The panelists, including representatives from the two sides of the negotiating table, will provide a status report after the conclusion of the fourth round of negotiations and will discuss the profound significance of such an agreement between two major and equal economic partners that share the same democratic and economic values.
