Transatlantic trade relations: Statement by EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht on the interim report of the EU-US High-Level Working Group on Jobs and Growth

"The announcement of Presidents Barroso and Obama welcoming the publication of the interim report on how to deepen the transatlantic trade relationship is extremely encouraging. We are now entering the last leg of mapping out how we should tackle any eventual negotiation to boost growth and jobs through our trade partnership. I look forward to continue working with my US counterpart to complete the final stage allowing us to present both leaders with the final report as quickly as possible.”
