On January 31, 2014, AmCham Sweden held a press conference at the offices of Prime PR in Stockholm. The main speakers, Mark Brzezinski; US Ambassador to Sweden, Ewa Björling; Swedish Minister for Trade, and Hans Stråberg; Co-Chair of the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue introduced the first two videos in a series entitled TTIP: Removing Trade Barriers.
The videos were shown at the press conference and are now posted on a youtube channel – TTIP: Removing Barriers – and have been produced by AmCham Sweden to clearly explain the benefits of the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) that is now being negotiated between the EU and US.
AmCham Sweden encourages member companies to provide a link on their websites to the youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TTIPremovingbarriers in order to spread news of TTIP throughout their organizations. At least three more installments in the series – TTIP: Removing Barriers – will be posted in the weeks and months ahead. We will keep you informed as each new video is added to the youtube channel.
The first video in this series, TTIP: Removing Trade Barriers “What is TTIP?” provides a background for the proposed trade agreement, and begins to explain how important this could be for Sweden’s businesses and overall economy, as well as its impact on Swedish consumers and families.
The press conference was live streamed in its entirety and can now be viewed here as well.
