Last June, President Obama, together with European Commission President Barroso and European Council President Van Rompuy, launched negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. While a comprehensive agreement could bring significant benefits for the participants, the implications for non-parties, particularly among developing countries, are unclear. Nor is there much attention to this issue. The Center for Global Development is pleased to host a transatlantic conversation on the steps that American and European negotiators should take to ensure that a successful TTIP negotiation is not at the expense of those left out.
