Do you have difficulties trading in the US?

12 December 2014

The European Commission is seeking views from SMEs on how they want the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP – a free trade agreement between the EU and US) deal to look? SMEs are set to be real winners, making it much easier for SMEs to trade with the US. The consultation closes on 15 December. 

We expect TTIP to:

  • eliminate tariffs between the EU and US
  • improve regulatory coherence (eliminating unnecessary rules, differing standards for goods and approval processes) 
  • improve customs processes; and
  • provide better support for SMEs

Please let the Commission know their views so they can do even more for SMEs:
