Online event on EU-US trade relations
VDMA President Karl Haeusgen discussed EU-US trade relations on 21 April 2021, together with MEP Bütikofer.
The US is the most important export market outside Europe for many European industries. Therefore, trade relations with the US are of crucial importance for the European mechanical engineering industry. Under Joe Biden, there is finally an opportunity to achieve a more positive trade relationship between the EU and the US. One can think of concluding transatlantic trade agreements such as on conformity assessment, finding a long-lasting solution for the Airbus/Boeing dispute, reforming the WTO and cooperation on Greening Trade.
