Round of EU-US trade talks end amid protests

Chief negotiators for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Dan Mullaney (L) of the United States and Ignacio Garcia Bercero of the European Union deliver a press conference in Brussels on July 18, 2014EU and US negotiators ended a sixth round of trade liberalisation talks on Friday by vowing to maintain transparency, as anti-globalisation protesters nearby urged the project be scrapped. “We have had intense discussions” that have been extremely technical so that “political decisions can be taken later,” said chief European Union negotiator Ignacio Garcia Bercero at the end of the five-day talks in Brussels. “A lot has changed since we started the talks a year ago,” said chief US negotiator Dan Mullaney, adding that negotiators had spent “a great deal of time on regulatory issues”. Resistance in both the United States and the European Union has grown since the talks began a year ago, with activists worried that the deal is being negotiated behind close doors to the benefit of corporate interests.
