Statement by U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman
at the Close of the Sixth Round of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations

The sixth round of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) negotiations ended earlier today in Brussels. U.S. and EU negotiators worked productively this week to identify paths forward across the negotiations. Opportunities for a major upgrade of one’s biggest economic relationship do not come along often, and we cannot afford to squander this one. I applaud the efforts of the teams for exploring creative ways to open markets to support job creation, growth and competitiveness, including by bridging divergences in our regulatory regimes, without compromising the level of health, safety and other regulations our people have come to expect.
