Getting to Yes on Transatlantic Trade

by Renewing America Staff
July 10, 2013


The United States and the European Union should create a new global regulatory blueprint through the just-launched Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations, CFR Senior Fellow for Global Health, Economics, and Development Thomas J. Bollyky and Columbia Law School’s Anu Bradford write in their new Foreign Affairs article, “Getting to Yes on Transatlantic Trade.” In an era of global supply chains, disparate and overlapping regulatory policies are the central hindrance to greater trade between the U.S. and the EU. If TTIP negotiators focus on sectors in which the two share similar trade and regulation goals, the agreement could serve as a necessary foundation for future transatlantic and global trade cooperation.
