Čezatlantski odnosi

This page is also available in

EU, ZDA in Kanada imajo skupne vrednote demokracije, človekovih pravic, gospodarske in politične svobode ter enake interese 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 (CETA) ter sporazum o strateškem partnerstvu med EU in Kanado sta bila podpisana 30. oktobra 2016. Prizadevali si bomo za stalno sodelovanje civilne družbe pri njunem izvajanju. 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, kakšni naj bi bili prihodnji trgovinski odnosi 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.

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.
