Media Partnership - What's Next for the Transatlantic Trade and Technology Council?
Enhancing bilateral cooperation between Europe and the United States is key to boosting bilateral trade and investment, avoiding unnecessary barriers to trade, and strengthening global cooperation on digital policy, technology, and supply chains. The launch of the EU-US Trade and Technology Council (TTC) on 29 September was a groundbreaking step in helping achieve a common vision and standards for governing new technologies and establishing effective and innovative Transatlantic tech policy for all.
ITI - The Information Technology Industry Council - is launching an event featuring tech industry leaders and policy makers on both sides of the Atlantic to discuss the future of the TTC and how industry and policy can work together to make this new venture a success.
Commission EVP Margrethe Vestager will deliver the keynote speech at this hybrid event hosted by ITI. ITI CEO and President Jason Oxman and other high level policy actors and industry experts will then come together to share ideas, best practices, and debate the future of the TTC.
