Transatlantické vzťahy

This page is also available in

EÚ, USA a Kanada spájajú hodnoty demokracie, ľudských práv a hospodárskej a politickej slobody a ich záujmy sa prekrývajú v oblasti zahraničnej politiky a bezpečnosti. USA a Kanada patri k hlavným obchodným partnerom EÚ a tiež partnerom pri formovaní medzinárodného právneho poriadku. Transatlantické vzťahy sa v súčasnosti odvíjajú v novom prostredí a sú konfrontované s rastúcimi výzvami. Domnievame sa, že zapojenie občianskej spoločnosti do týchto vzťahov poskytuje záruku, že transatlantické vzťahy sú schopné reagovať na očakávania občanov a účinne prispieť k formovaniu vzájomne prospešnej spolupráce.

Komplexná hospodárska a obchodná dohoda medzi EÚ a Kanadou (CETA) a dohoda o strategickom partnerstve boli podpísané 30. októbra 2016. Budeme sa zaoberať neustálym zapájaním občianskej spoločnosti do vykonávania týchto dohôd. Rokovania o Transatlantickom obchodnom a investičnom partnerstve (TTIP) medzi EÚ a USA sú v súčasnosti na mŕtvom bode. Rokovania o TTIP však prispeli k posilneniu väzieb medzi občianskou spoločnosťou EÚ a USA a k definovaniu postoja občianskej spoločnosti k tomu, ako by mali vyzerať budúce obchodné vzťahy medzi EÚ a USA. Tieto výsledky by sa nemali len tak stratiť. Náš monitorovací výbor Transatlantické vzťahy bol zriadený v septembri 2014 s mandátom monitorovať transatlantické vzťahy s občianskou spoločnosťou, viesť pravidelný dialóg a konzultácie o otázkach týkajúcich sa vzťahov s USA a Kanadou.

The EESC has played an important role in strengthening an informed civil society debate on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) through a number of TTIP-related opinions, adopted in 2014 and 2015, covering issues such as labour rights, investment protection, impact on SMEs, among others.

It is important under the present circumstances that the EESC, in order to maintain its position as a key civil society player in the TTIP debate, react to the textual proposals for TTIP negotiations on essential topics such as the sustainable development chapter, regulatory cooperation, investment and services. This will have the advantage not only of setting up the EESC position on major negotiating chapters but also of presenting concrete recommendations and pointing out the need to involve civil society in the implementation of those chapters.

The own-initiative opinion will focus on the impact of the TTIP on SMEs and reflect on the provisions that would need to be included in the TTIP in order to take account of the specific character of SMEs in the negotiations and implementation of an eventual EU-US agreement. The opinion will also look at how to increase the awareness of SMEs as to existing support services and programmes, and particularly about the new business opportunities that may arise with this agreement.

Since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the investment policy is an exclusive competence of the European Union. The EU is aiming to include therefore in the new trade and investment agreements provisions on investor protection and investor to state dispute settlement (ISDS) which will replace existing Bilateral Investment Agreements (BIT) signed by Member States and will grant the same level of protection to all EU investors.
