Stockholm hosting high-level dialogue on TTIP

Published

On 31 May, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs – together with the Swedish Trade Union Confederation and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise – is hosting a high-level dialogue on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, TTIP. Minister for EU Affairs and Trade Ann Linde will take part, together with EU Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström and the United States Trade Representative, Ambassador Michael Froman.

The two chief negotiators for TTIP, Ignacio Garcia Bercero (EU) and Dan Mullaney (US) will also be there, as will President of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson and Director-General of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise Carola Lemne.

During the dialogue, issues such as market access, sustainability, rights and protectionism will be discussed. The participants invited include representatives of environmental organisations, the business sector and trade unions.

"The dialogue will be a unique opportunity to discuss the advantages and challenges of TTIP. It will be an opportunity for various groups to have their voices heard and raise the issues that concern them. Transparency and openness are and should be the watchwords when the two largest markets in the world negotiate a free trade agreement. The Stockholm dialogue is a concrete expression of openness and transparency in free trade negotiations," says Ms Linde, who will deliver one of the main addresses during the dialogue.
