Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Caucus Launch
The Atlantic Council, Bertelsmann Foundation, and the British Embassy in Washington, and the German Marshall Fund hosted a reception on Capitol Hill on Thursday, April 3rd, 2014 to honor the new Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Caucus. The bipartisan caucus, chaired by Congressman Bill Keating (D-MA), Congressman Richard Neal (D-MA), Congressman Erik Paulsen (R-MN), and Congressman Todd Young (R-IN), brought together key stakeholders in both the United States and European Union to discuss the benefits of TTIP. The event also highlighted the findings of TTIP and the Fifty States: Jobs and Growth from Coast to Coast, a report produced by the co-partnering organizations. The report highlights the potential increase in exports and job growth resulting from the negotiation of a successful TTIP agreement for each US State, over 70 congressional districts, and key American economic sectors.
