Announcement of Next Round of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations

The United States and European Union will hold the second round of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) negotiations with meetings and digital video-conferences scheduled to take place over the next several weeks. From November 11-15, negotiators will meet in Brussels to cover services, investment, energy and raw materials, and regulatory issues. U.S. and EU teams will conduct negotiations on other areas of T-TIP negotiations by digital video-conference throughout November.

These negotiating sessions replace those originally scheduled for October 7-11, which were postponed due to the shutdown of the U.S. government. A negotiating session on government procurement took place in October, just prior to the shutdown.

The third round of negotiations will be held December 16-20 in Washington D.C.
