T-TIP Talks Off To A Shaky Start

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association officials want the U.S. to enter into a comprehensive free trade agreement with the European Union. NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says so far the T-TIP or Trans Atlantic trade initiative partnership is rather shaky in its beginnings with the E.U. trying to take non tariff barriers off the table.

Woodall says a complete deal is needed between the two countries with nothing omitted that may have impacts on all the countries involved.

Woodall says if all the barriers can be resolved, that the T-TIP has great economic promise for both the United States and the European Union.

T-tip negotiations ramp up next month.
