As both sides gear up for the second ministerial meeting of the Trade and Technology Council (TTC) in Paris on 15-16 May, we have outlined three principles that should continue to guide the activities across all working groups: foster transparency and stakeholder engagement; outline roadmaps and clear deliverables; and prioritise outcomes with concrete impact. Throughout the discussions, transatlantic policymakers should focus on specific areas where the EU and the US can achieve tangible progress: emerging technology standards, 5G, cybersecurity, climate and clean technology, export controls, rules-based trading system and semiconductors. Here's how to take the TTC to the next level.
