[Online] The future of trade: How can Europe and the United States join forces to rewrite the post-Covid trade agenda
04 March at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Under the Biden administration, Americans and Europeans need to rebuild as close a transatlantic relationship as possible. Transatlantic partners may have different viewpoints on specific trade issues. But both sides have much to gain by working together on trade related issues in many areas and intensifying the closest economic relationship there is between any two big markets in the world.
Europeans and Americans face a number of constraints to return to a more positive trade agenda than what we have experienced during the last four years of transatlantic relations. The WTO has been weakened by various developments, not least Donald Trump’s policies and the systemic challenge China is posing to the way we view open and fair trade. With that said, there are no winners when the world economy is impaired by trade tensions and especially Europe and the U.S. have much to gain from a joint trade agenda.Notre Europe - Jacques Delors Institute firstname.lastname@example.org DD/MM/YYYY 15
