Trade Officials Ask For Advice About Europe

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is giving members of the public, including life insurance industry participants, a chance to shape trade talks with the European Union.[@@]

The trade office has put out a notice asking members of the public for ideas about the future of transatlantic ties.

“The U.S. government’s objective is to stimulate concrete ideas from interested stakeholders for specific government actions that could enhance U.S.-E.U. economic integration,” Mark Mowrey, a deputy assistant in the trade office, writes in the request for public comment.

The trade office will be meeting with and soliciting written comments from businesses, business groups, labor groups, environmental groups, academic groups and other elements of “civil society,” Mowrey writes.

Mowrey suggests that comments could address questions such as, “Where should the U.S. and E.U. economic relationship be in 10 years and what steps should we take to meet these goals?” and “What should be done to further liberalize transatlantic trade in services?”

Mowrey also asks for suggestions about ways to better mesh U.S. and E.U. regulatory approaches.

Rules for responding to the request for public comment are on the Web at //
