What will TTIP mean for the UK?

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed free-trade agreement between the European Union and the United States.

Policymakers in the EU and the US hope to conclude talks by the end of 2016, but stumbling blocks remain.

Questions included:
- What could be TTIP’s impact on Britain relative to other EU member states?
- Who could be the winners and losers within Britain from TTIP?
- What are the likely stumbling blocks to an agreement?
- If Britain’s referendum on EU membership results in Britain leaving the bloc, what would be the impact on TTIP and British overseas trade?

Timothy Adamson, Research Specialist at AmCham EU and one of the speakers of the event, has written an opinion piece on British support to TTIP: read UK support for TTIP remains strong – more EU countries should follow its lead
