How can digital initiatives enhance transatlantic trade? Representatives from the United States and the European Union will discuss possible transatlantic cooperation on digital initiatives to enhance trade during an online Trade and Technology Dialogue (TTD) roundtable event.
ANSI encourages relevant stakeholders to register for the May 4 webinar, to be held from 9:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m. ET. on WebEx. The session is organized under the auspices of the Trade and Technology Council (TTC) Working Group (WG) 10 – Global Trade Challenges.
Digital Initiatives to Enhance Trade: Background and Goals
The U.S. and the European Commission, within the TTC WG 10 on Global Trade Challenges, have identified and exchanged information on several EU and U.S. initiatives that seek to make it easier for companies—particularly small- and medium-sized enterprises—to engage in trade, as outlined in a U.S.- EU TTC reference document. The May session will explore the development of joint best practices.
The goal of the roundtable is to gather insights on how digital technology can be used by governments to make trading easier and ways in which the U.S. and EU could potentially cooperate further towards best practices or compatibility of digital tools. Discussions will inform further cooperation of the EU and U.S. in the TTC WG 10.

About the U.S.- EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC)
President Biden, European Commission President von der Leyen, and European Council President Michel established the TTC at the 2021 U.S.-EU Summit, which affirmed both the United States’ and the EU’s commitment to renew and reinvigorate the transatlantic partnership and deepen U.S.-EU cooperation.
The TTD supports the TTC with stakeholder activities and analysis. Over a three-year period, from May 2022 until May 2025, the TTD brings together experts and stakeholders on both sides of the Atlantic with events and research outputs to facilitate inclusive, efficient, and effective discussions and joint initiatives in support of the TTC and its 10 working groups. TTD activities are published on EC’s Futurium website, with information on all TTC Working Groups.
