What are key lessons learned from almost two years of TTIP negotiations?
What are the costs if TTIP negotiations fail in a dynamic world?
What is a realistic outlook on future negotiations and potential outcomes?
Bringing together expert voices from across the political, social and business spectrums, we’ll address these questions and more at TTIP Reloaded Conference in Rome, October 29, 2014.
Organized by Bertelsmann Stiftung and Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini and held at Scuderie di Palazzo Altieri, Key Note speakers will include:
- Ignacio Garcia Bercero, Director at the Directorate General for Trade of the European Commission,
- Elena Bryan, Senior Trade Representative, U.S. Mission to the European Union and
- Monique Goyens, Director General, European Consumers’ Organization BEUC.
“Our goal at this conference is to focus on new perspectives regarding TTIP that have not yet been thoroughly reviewed by presenting new research and encouraging discussion.” Noted Dr. Ulrich Schoof from the GED-Team, Senior Project Manager at Bertelsmann Stiftung, “We want to make the discussion as open and transparent as possible by hearing views from consumer, labor and trade experts from both sides of the Atlantic.”
Occurring just after the seventh round of talks and immediately prior to when the new E.U. Commission, with new Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström starts in November, this is an optimal time for a stock taking exercise to discuss the negotiation process as a whole so far.
