DWF to host TTIP debate

DWF is hosting a breakfast event in London on Wednesday 4 February, which will discuss the implications of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

TTIP is a proposed free trade agreement between the European Union and the United States. It is a ground breaking proposal which will result in multilateral economic growth for our clients, with the Prime Minister predicting it could generate over £10b of revenue for the UK alone. However, very little information is publicly available to allow companies to understand what it will mean for them.

With presentations from Ronald Yip, Senior Advisor at BIS, as well as DWF’s Hilary Ross and Jonathan Branton, our event will seek to outline the proposals from the draft TTIP agreement and explore the potential legal issues arising from the proposal.

The event will also feature a panel debate, including representatives from Shore Capital, Citi Group, Lloyds of London and Pernod Ricard.

Have your say

In order to help inform the debate at our event, we are looking for your input and views on the proposed agreement. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey. Your answers will be used to help shape the debate.

The seminar will cover three broad areas:

  • Market access: How the removal of custom duties and tariffs on goods and, restrictions on goods and services will allow companies to gain better access to public markets and, make it easier to invest.
  • Industry-specific regulation: How the introduction of new sector specific agreements and the dismantling of technical regulations will overcome barriers to trade.
  • Broader rules and principles and modes of cooperation: Improved cooperation when it comes to setting international standards including trade and sustainable development, labour and environment, public procurement, intellectual property, trade remedies, customs and trade facilitation and energy and raw materials.
