Relazioni transatlantiche

This page is also available in

L'Unione europea, gli Stati Uniti e il Canada condividono i valori della democrazia, dei diritti umani, della libertà economica e politica, e le loro politiche estere e le loro preoccupazioni in materia di sicurezza sono convergenti. Gli Stati Uniti e il Canada sono tra i principali partner commerciali dell'UE e sono anche partner nella definizione dell'ordinamento giuridico internazionale. Le relazioni transatlantiche oggi si svolgono in un nuovo contesto e si trovano ad affrontare sfide crescenti. Secondo il Comitato, il coinvolgimento della società civile in tale rapporto garantisce che le relazioni transatlantiche siano in grado di rispondere alle aspettative dei cittadini e contribuiscano efficacemente a plasmare una cooperazione reciprocamente vantaggiosa.

Il 30 ottobre 2016 sono stati firmati l'accordo economico e commerciale globale UE-Canada (CETA) e l'accordo di partenariato strategico. Il Comitato si adopererà per coinvolgere costantemente la società civile nell'attuazione di tali accordi. I negoziati tra l'UE e gli Stati Uniti in merito a un partenariato transatlantico su commercio e investimenti (TTIP) sono attualmente in stallo. Tuttavia, tali negoziati hanno contribuito a rafforzare i legami tra la società civile delle due regioni e a definire le posizioni di quest'ultima in merito alla forma che dovrebbero assumere le future relazioni commerciali tra le due parti. È auspicabile che tali risultati non vadano perduti. Il comitato di monitoraggio Relazioni transatlantiche è stato istituito nel settembre 2014 con il mandato di monitorare le relazioni transatlantiche con la società civile, instaurando un dialogo e consultazioni periodiche su questioni riguardanti i rapporti con gli Stati Uniti e il 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.
