Transatlantiske forbindelser

EU, USA og Canada har den samme indstilling til værdier som demokrati og respekt for menneskerettighederne samt økonomisk og politisk frihed og nogle udenrigspolitiske og sikkerhedsmæssige bekymringer, der på nogle punkter ligner hinanden. USA og Canada er blandt EU's vigtigste handelspartnere, og de er desuden med til at udforme den internationale retsorden. De transatlantiske forbindelser udøves på nye præmisser og står over for nogle voksende udfordringer. Vi mener, at civilsamfundets deltagelse sikrer, at de transatlantiske forbindelser kan imødekomme borgernes forventninger og effektivt bidrage til, at samarbejdet bliver til alles fordel.

Den samlede økonomi- og handelsaftale (CETA) mellem EU og Canada og den strategiske partnerskabsaftale blev undertegnet den 30. oktober 2016. Vi håber på et konstant engagement fra civilsamfundet i gennemførelsen af disse aftaler. Forhandlingerne om det transatlantiske handels- og investeringspartnerskab (TTIP) mellem EU og USA står for tiden stille. TTIP-forhandlingerne har dog bidraget til at styrke forbindelserne mellem EU's og USA's civilsamfund og til at udforme civilsamfundets syn på, hvordan det fremtidige handelsforhold mellem EU og USA bør se ud, og det bør ikke gå til spilde. Vores opfølgningsudvalg for transatlantiske forbindelser blev oprettet i september 2014 med mandat til at overvåge de transatlantiske forbindelser til civilsamfundet og afholde regelmæssige dialoger og høringer om forhold, der er relevante for forbindelserne til USA og Canada.

Transatlantic relations remain strong and important even though they have recently had a very bad press. Business, both in the EU and the US, has a role to play in overcoming current difficulties. Together, we can effectively promote a positive transatlantic agenda and help to fight stereotypes and misinformation. These are just some of the conclusions of the debate with Susan Danger, CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU. The debate took place during the Employers' Group meeting on 11 July 2018.
