Relaciones transatlánticas

This page is also available in

La UE, los EE. UU. y Canadá comparten los valores de la democracia, los derechos humanos, la libertad económica y política y se ocupan de cuestiones comunes en materia de política exterior y seguridad. Los EE. UU. y Canadá constituyen dos de los principales socios comerciales de la UE, y son también socios en la conformación del ordenamiento jurídico internacional. Las relaciones transatlánticas actuales tienen lugar en un nuevo entorno y se enfrentan a retos cada vez mayores. Consideramos que la participación de la sociedad civil en esta relación proporciona una garantía de que las relaciones transatlánticas son capaces de responder a las expectativas públicas y contribuir eficazmente a la conformación de una cooperación mutuamente beneficiosa.

El Acuerdo Económico y Comercial Global entre la UE y Canadá (AECG) y el Acuerdo de Asociación Estratégica fueron firmados el 30 de octubre de 2016. Buscaremos una participación constante de la sociedad civil en la aplicación de estos acuerdos. En estos momentos, las negociaciones sobre una Asociación Transatlántica de Comercio e Inversión (ATCI) entre la UE y los EE. UU. están paralizadas. No obstante, las negociaciones sobre la ATCI contribuyeron al fortalecimiento de los vínculos entre la sociedad civil de la UE y los EE. UU. y a la definición de los puntos de vista de la sociedad civil sobre cómo debe ser la futura relación comercial entre la UE y los EE. UU. No deberían perderse estos logros. Nuestro Comité de Seguimiento de las Relaciones Transatlánticas fue creado en septiembre de 2014 con el mandato de supervisar los vínculos transatlánticos con la sociedad civil,

The EESC Employers' Group is organising a seminar on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" taking place on 26 October in Helsinki and jointly organized with the Confederation of Finnish Industries and the International Chamber of Commerce, ICC Finland.

Trade and Investment are hugely important for the EU: 1 in 7 EU jobs depend on exports. The EU cannot risk falling behind in the global race to build a wide and ambitious network of free trade agreements. The signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (involving 12 countries and 40% of world GDP) is a timely reminder of this. This seminar, which will be attended by many of our Members together with Finnish employers and entrepreneurs, politicians and academics aims to examine how to best contribute positively to the debate as trade agreements (TTIP - TISA - CETA - EU-JAPAN) increasingly become a top political issue.

Economists believe that an agreement with the USA will be advantageous for both the European Union and the USA, and the negative effects of trade liberalisation will be insignificant. This publication is a summary of the debate on "What development opportunities does the TTIP bring to Europe?" that was held in Sopot on 2 October 2014 as part of the European Forum for New Ideas.
