On July 29, the Atlantic Council’s Global Business & Economic Program’s EuroGrowth Initiative hosted a roundtable discussion on transatlantic trade, featuring Daniel Mullaney, Assistant US Trade Representative for Europe and the Middle East.
Mr. Mullaney outlined relevant issues pertaining to US-EU trade, as well as the US trade strategy for the rest of the world. More specifically, Mr. Mullaney discussed tariffs and non-tariff barriers to trade and WTO reform. Additionally, Mr. Mullaney touched on issue areas where the EU and US are seeing progress in their trade discussions, and other areas where the two side still need to make more headway.
Bart Oosterveld, Director of the Atlantic Council’s Global Business & Economics Program and C. Boyden Gray Fellow on Global Finance and Growth, moderated the lively roundtable discussion. Participants touched on other issues such as the ongoing US-China trade war and its impacts, the threat of auto tariffs on European cars, and the trade strategy of the Trump administration.
