The State of TTIP Negotiations and Transatlantic Cooperation with Dr. Stormy-Annika Mildner

Amid still sluggish economic growth in Europe, AGI President Dr. Jackson Janes sits down with Dr. Stormy-Annika Mildner, Head of the International Economic Policy Division at the German Federal Association of Industries and a Non-Resident Fellow at AGI, to discuss the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in Europe, particularly in Germany. While the negotiations are moving forward, there is strong opposition in Europe. Dr. Milder suggests that a transparent negotiation process, open citizen dialogues, and close transatlantic communication are key to promoting the ambitious trade and investment agreement.
