USCIB’s European Union Committee promotes the interests of U.S. businesses in Europe and works to ensure the benefits of unobstructed transatlantic trade and investment.
The U.S. and EU share the largest bilateral trade and investment relationship in the world. While their approaches to common economic issues often diverge, their longstanding and integrated commercial ties help foster a harmonized and mutually beneficial partnership. U.S. companies hold an important stake in trade issues that arise on both sides of the Atlantic that affect jobs, standards and the regulatory environment.
USCIB and the EU Committee monitor European political developments that have an impact on U.S. business interests. The committee also fosters multilateral work on the transatlantic dialogue.
The EU committee strongly supports both the elimination of trade barriers between the U.S. and EU and the decision to launch negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
USCIB facilitates the engagement of U.S. business in bilateral dialogues, including the Transatlantic Economic Council, and actively contributes to industry coalitions that follow EU affairs. The EU committee holds meetings with officials of the European Commission and the U.S. government on issues vetted with members in multilateral forums, including investment, environment and trade liberalization.
The EU committee serves as the focal point for coordinating EU-related activity in other USCIB policy committees, especially the USCIB Trade and Investment Committee.
