This page is also available in:

L-UE, l-Istati Uniti u l-Kanada jaqsmu l-valuri tad-demokrazija, id-drittijiet tal-bniedem, u l-libertà ekonomika u politika u l-preokkupazzjonijiet tagħhom dwar il-politika barranija u s-sigurtà huma komuni għat-tlieta li huma. L-Istati Uniti u l-Kanada huma fost l-imsieħba kummerċjali ewlenin tal-UE u huma wkoll imsieħba fejn jidħol it-tiswir tal-ordni legali internazzjonali. Illum il-ġurnata, ir-relazzjonijiet trans-Atlantiċi jseħħu f’ambjent ġdid u qed jiffaċċjaw sfidi dejjem jikbru. Aħna nqisu li l-kontribut tas-soċjetà ċivili f’din ir-relazzjoni jipprovdi garanzija li r-relazzjonijiet trans-Atlantiċi jkunu f’pożizzjoni jissodisfaw l-aspettattivi tal-pubbliku u jikkontribwixxu effettivament għall-iżvilupp ta’ kooperazzjoni li tkun ta’ ġid reċiproku.

Il-Ftehim Ekonomiku u Kummerċjali Komprensiv bejn l-UE u l-Kanada (CETA) u l-Ftehim ta’ Sħubija Strateġika ġew iffirmati fit-30 ta’ Ottubru 2016. Aħna ser inħabirku biex is-soċjetà ċivili tinvolvi ruħha kontinwament fl-implimentazzjoni ta’ dawn il-ftehimiet. In-negozjati dwar Sħubija Trans-Atlantika ta’ Kummerċ u ta’ Investiment (TTIP) bejn l-UE u l-Istati Uniti bħalissa jinsabu weqfin. Madankollu, in-negozjati dwar it-TTIP ikkontribwixxew għat-tisħiħ tar-rabtiet bejn is-soċjetà ċivili fl-UE u l-Istati Uniti u għad-definizzjoni tal-fehmiet tas-soċjetà ċivili dwar liema forma għandha tieħu r-relazzjoni kummerċjali futura bejn l-UE u l-Istati Uniti. Dawn il-kisbiet m’għandhomx jintilfu. Il-Kumitat ta’ Segwitu tagħna dwar ir-Relazzjonijiet Trans-Atlantiċi twaqqaf f’Settembru 2014 b’mandat li jissorvelja r-rabtiet trans-Atlantiċi mas-soċjetà ċivili u stabbilixxa djalogu u konsultazzjoni regolari dwar kwistjonijiet li jirrigwardaw ir-relazzjonijiet mal-Istati Uniti u l-Kanada.

    At its July plenary, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) argued that the new Trade and Technology Council (TTC) can become an innovative tool for both the EU and USA to work together towards a safer and more prosperous world, based on the principles of sustainable development and democratic values.

  • The EESC’s Transatlantic Relations Follow-up Committee met to discuss two current and timely topics with the aim of strengthening the EU-US partnership on a global scene, particularly important in the current challenging international context: the state of play of the transatlantic trade policy and the Year of Action between the two Summits for Democracy.

  • With China and Russia on the offensive, a renewed and reliable transatlantic partnership is the key to maintaining international and legal order and peace. The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) supports the idea of an Alliance of Democracies, ensuring that civil society has significant say in the joint defence of universal values and rights.

  • Through increased transatlantic dialogue, the Trade and Technology Council and the upcoming Summit for Democracy, the United States and the European Union have reached out to each other to jointly face global and internal challenges, and build a strong partnership on the basis of common democratic values.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • With discussions for TTIP now at a critical point, the EESC has published a new opinion, ‘The position of the EESC on specific key issues of the TTIP negotiations’.
