U.S.-EU TTC To Hold Second Meeting In Europe

Share post:

U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai confirmed on Wednesday that the U.S.-European Union Trade and Technology Council (TTC) will hold a second meeting in Europe later this year.

“Going forward, the Biden-Harris Administration will use the TTC to further U.S.-EU cooperation on technology and innovation, advance our shared democratic values, and protect fundamental labor rights, “Tai said.

Tai did not give a specific timeframe for the meeting, but it is expected to follow an inaugural TTC conference last year in Pittsburgh.

At the Pittsburgh meeting, both sides agreed to strengthen semiconductor supply chains, curb China’s non-market practices, and adopt a more unified approach to regulating large global technology companies.

The meetings were chaired by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai, EU trade chief Valdis Dombrovskis, and European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager.
