More transparency in transatlantic trade talks

EU citizens must be better informed of the progress of EU-US talks on the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Tiziana Beghin debated the issue with EU trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht on Tuesday afternoon.

"This is not just about tariffs, which are already low, but an instrument to remove 'obstacles' to free trade - such as the rights which our workers have acquired after generations of struggle; environmental regulations reducing pollution, food safety rules that protect us from hormone beef, GMOs, and dangerous chemicals."
