    The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership: an opportunity for all, not just for business

    TTIP creates historical opportunities for European business. By reducing non-tariff barriers and harmonising the regulatory environment, Europe and US will not only create the biggest market in the world, they will also set the standards for international trade in the future. The participants in a debate organised by the Employers' Group of the European Economic and Social Committee sought to identify the main opportunities and challenges that TTIP brings to Europe.

    Eastern Partnership: statement by the president of the EESC

    (English version available soon) A l'occasion de la réunion ministérielle qui s'est tenue sur le Partenariat Oriental ce mardi 22 juillet, le président du Comité économique et social européen, Henri Malosse, a pris la parole devant l'assemblée.

    N'ayons pas de doute : la perspective européenne doit unir et non pas diviser. Certes, je me félicite que les trois pays aient signé de nouveaux Accords d'Association, mais je ne puis que regretter profondément le prix que l'Europe toute entière, et les Européens, paient pour cela.
