EU-US Draft Mandate for the TTIP
Following its practice of untransparence in trade and investment issues, last 13 March the EU Commission adopdet a "restraint" Recommendation for a Council Decision authorising the opening of negotiations on a comprehensive trade and investment agreement, called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, between the European Union and the United States of America. The online magazine Inside US Trade published this draft mandate on 28 March 2013.
