Conference – An Eagle Eye on TTIP

On 19/02/2015, in All posts, by Animal Welfare Intergroup

EagleOn Tuesday 3rd March 2015, the Humane Society International and  World Animal Protection will hold a conference titled “An Eagle Eye on TTIP- Agriculture, research and sustainable development- what’s on the horizon for TTIP?”   This event will be hosted by David Martin MEP, Honorary Secretary of the Intergroup and will take place in the hotel Silken Berlaymont from 15.00-18.00 hrs.

The conference will be followed by a reception in celebration of  “World Wildlife Day”.

The TTIP negotiations have so far provoked heated political discussion; with debates often reveling diametrically opposed ideological stances about free trade and its impact on society. Will TTIP lead to standards being downgraded? Does regulatory cooperation work in practice, Could TTIP advance standards globally? What impact would an EU-US trade agreement have on the rest of the world?

This conference brings together MEPs, EU negotiators, US government officials, NGOs and industry representatives to explore key issues, such as regulatory cooperation, convergence of standards and government-to-government settlement. These issues, and their implications for animal protection, will be debated in three panel discussions with input from US and EU TTIP negotiators.
