International trade – TTIP

Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, ITRE
Short name
International trade
Shadow rapporteur

Pavel Telička was, as a shadow rapporteur, working also on the Opinion on recommendations to the European Commission on the negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

The aim of the text was to include the easier access to the US public procurement and lower administrative burden for the EU SMEs. And also to add a separate energy chapter to the text of agreement.

Efforts to have in agreement separate chapters on small and medium-sized enterprises and energy, was finally successful.

Details can be found in the opinion of the ITRE Committee to TTIP, here. Or in the overview of Pavel Telička´s files (which you can read below).
