In his remarks, Ambassador Froman highlighted T-TIP’s potential to strengthen U.S.-EU bilateral trade and investment relations as well as raise standards in the global trading system.   A comprehensive agreement would expand economic and job growth by reducing tariffs on U.S. consumer and agricultural products, creating new openings for our service providers, and making U.S. and EU regulations and standards more compatible.  Ambassador Froman also stressed that to be successful, T-TIP must include rules, principles, and new modes of cooperation to address shared global trade challenges.
