Transzatlanti kapcsolatok

This page is also available in

Az EU, az USA és Kanada közös értékei a demokrácia, az emberi jogok, valamint a gazdasági és politikai szabadság, emellett számos kül- és biztonságpolitikai kérdésben is hasonló az álláspontjuk. Az USA és Kanada az EU legfontosabb kereskedelmi partnerei közé tartoznak, és a nemzetközi jogrend kialakításában is partnerek. A transzatlanti kapcsolatok manapság új környezetben zajlanak, és egyre fokozódó kihívásokkal szembesülnek. Véleményünk szerint a civil társadalom e kapcsolatba történő bevonása a garanciája annak, hogy a transzatlanti kapcsolatok képesek legyenek megfelelni a polgárok elvárásainak, és hatékonyan hozzájáruljanak egy kölcsönösen előnyös együttműködés kialakításához.

Az EU és Kanada közötti átfogó gazdasági és kereskedelmi megállapodás (CETA), valamint a stratégiai partnerségi megállapodás 2016. október 30-án került aláírásra. E megállapodások végrehajtása során folyamatos civil társadalmi részvételre számítunk. Az EU és az Egyesült Államok közötti transzatlanti kereskedelmi és beruházási partnerségre (TTIP) irányuló tárgyalások jelenleg szünetelnek. A TTIP-tárgyalások azonban hozzájárultak az EU és az USA civil társadalma közötti kapcsolatok erősítéséhez, továbbá ahhoz, hogy a civil társadalom véleményt fogalmazzon meg azzal kapcsolatban, hogy milyeneknek kell lenniük az EU és USA közötti jövőbeli kereskedelmi kapcsolatoknak. Ezeket az eredményeket nem szabad veszni hagyni. A transzatlanti kapcsolatokat nyomon követő bizottságunkat 2014 szeptemberében alakítottuk meg azzal a megbízatással, hogy kísérje figyelemmel a tengerentúli civil társadalomhoz fűződő kapcsolatokat, és rendszeresen szervezzen párbeszédet, valamint konzultációt az USA-val és Kanadával fenntartott kapcsolatokat érintő kérdésekről.

The role of trade as a generator of growth and jobs is undeniable, but public perception of the further liberalisation of trade is getting worse and citizens' concerns must be addressed far more effectively than before. This was one of the conclusions of the conference on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" that took place in Helsinki on 26 October.

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.
