On December 5, EU and US leaders met in Maryland, United States for the third ministerial meeting of the Trade and Technology Council (TTC). They outlined an ambitious list of deliverables in a range of areas, including artificial intelligence, standards, quantum, digital infrastructure and connectivity in third countries, semiconductor supply chain resilience, vaccines, skills and sustainable trade. The main message conveyed in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce statement following the Ministerial.
The 3rd Ministerial yielded some outcomes related to the priorities outlined in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce joint statement with BusinessEurope, but none with significant near-term commercial upsides.
Commenting on the outcomes of the ministerial, Susan Danger, CEO of AmCham EU, said: ‘We applaud the EU and the U.S. for their commitment and political leadership in delivering tangible outcomes. Advancing cooperation in these strategic areas is critical to strengthening the transatlantic economy and tackling global challenges. We also continue to encourage regular dialogue with stakeholders between the ministerial meetings to ensure the effectiveness of the TTC."
