June 30 event on EU in the US--Understanding T-TIP



E.U.in the U.S. 2015: Understanding T-TIP
The transatlantic economy is the largest and most important in the world. The European Union’s role as an international actor in the economic and political arenas has grown in the last two decades. Leaders on both sides of the Atlantic are advocating for the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (T-TIP) to usher in a new era of EU-U.S. trade. This has particular interest to businesses in Minnesota, as 18 Fortune 500 corporations from the Twin Cities are doing business in Europe and the Minnesota Trade Office opened a satellite office in Düsseldorf, Germany in 2013. In fact, Minnesota companies export $4 billion annually in goods to the EU, making it the state’s second largest export market.
Join the Minnesota International Center and Fredrikson & Byron to discuss the U.S.-Europe trade relationship and examine how this ground breaking free trade agreement will positively affect businesses on both sides of the Atlantic.
A program of the World Affairs Councils of America in partnership with the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.
