Date: Jul 18 - Topic: Global Economics & Governance

The US and the EU have just launched the TTIP negotiations. The envisaged deep agreement would provide a boost to trade and economic growth to the two transatlantic economic powers, as well as reinforce their global influence as international standard and rules setters. However, and despite different studies having already outlined the benefits of TTIP, the debate on the feasibility of a deep agreement and even on its desirability is still open.
Given that tariffs between the EU and the US are already low, the TTIP will have to focus on elimination and convergence of non-tariff barriers and cross-border regulations, which are far more politically sensitive and administratively difficult to tackle. Hence, a more nuanced view of the potential net gains from the TTIP calls for careful analysis and discussion on the nature and feasibility of coherence in the EU and the US regulatory systems. And in doing so, lessons from the EU’s experience with the creation of the Single Market will be useful to recall and benchmark against.
