SME survey: Help us ensure a new EU-US trade deal benefits Europe’s smaller firms

This survey was designed to hear the views of small- and medium-sized companies (SME) and ensure that they will benefit from a new EU-US trade deal called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. We’re currently negotiating the TTIP on behalf of the EU’s 28 countries.

As smaller companies form the backbone of Europe's economy, we want to ensure that any deal we reach with the US benefits them in particular (More on SMEs in the TTIP).

To help our negotiating team, please take 15 minutes of your time to complete the survey. Send us your answers by 6pm Central European Time (CET) on Friday, 14 July 2014.

The results will become part of recommendations for our team, which we'll then discuss at a public meeting in Brussels. You will find details of this meeting in the coming weeks.


For questions about the survey please contact Ecorys, who is conducting the survey. Ecorys is an independent research firm that will help us to analyse the results.
