LAT­EST TTIP NE­GO­TI­A­TION ROUND UN­DER WAY IN NEW YORK

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

NEW YORK: Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the US and the EU on Mon­day re­sumed ne­go­ti­a­tions of the Transat­lantic Trade and In­vest­ment Part­ner­ship (TTIP) agree­ment as pres­sure in­creases on the trade deal. Doubts have arisen that the ef­fort to cre­ate the world’s largest eco­nomic zone still has a chance amid crit­i­cal voices in Ger­many and France, the US pres­i­den­tial race and tens of thou­sands of pro­tes­tors in Europe. In this 15th round of ne­go­ti­a­tions both sides will seek to ham­mer out un­con­tro­ver­sial ar­eas of the 30-chap­ter agree­ment, the so-called con­sol­i­dated text pas­sages. – dpa
