Čezatlantski odnosi

This page is also available in

EU, ZDA in Kanada imajo skupne vrednote demokracije, človekovih pravic, gospodarske in politične svobode ter sorodne pomisleke na področju zunanje politike in varnosti. ZDA in Kanada spadata med glavne trgovinske partnerice EU, z njo pa sodelujeta tudi pri oblikovanju mednarodnega pravnega reda. Čezatlantski odnosi potekajo v novem okolju, za katerega so značilni čedalje večji izzivi. Po našem mnenju civilna družba s svojo udeležbo v tem odnosu zagotavlja, da se lahko čezatlantski odnosi razvijajo glede na pričakovanja javnosti in učinkovito prispevajo k oblikovanju medsebojno koristnega sodelovanja.

Celoviti gospodarski in trgovinski sporazum ter sporazum o strateškem partnerstvu med EU in Kanado sta bila podpisana 30. oktobra 2016. Prizadevali si bomo za stalno sodelovanje civilne družbe pri izvajanju teh sporazumov. Pogajanja o čezatlantskem partnerstvu za trgovino in naložbe (TTIP) med EU in ZDA trenutno mirujejo. Vseeno so pogajanja o TTIP prispevala k okrepitvi povezav med civilno družbo v EU in ZDA ter k opredelitvi stališč civilne družbe o tem, kakšen bi moral biti prihodnji trgovinski odnos med EU in ZDA. Te dosežke je treba ohraniti. Naloga spremljevalnega odbora za čezatlantske odnose, ustanovljenega septembra 2014, je spremljanje čezatlantskih povezav s civilno družbo z izvajanjem rednega dialoga in posvetovanj o vprašanjih v zvezi z odnosi z ZDA in Kanado.

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.
