Posted on 09.09.2021

The European Union and the United States have announced on 15 June 2021 the launch of the EU-US Trade and Technology Council (TTC), as a political forum which could provide global leadership towards a green, circular, competitive, and inclusive economy.

The EU and the US have identified an initial list of ten Working Groups, which will operationalise the political decisions into deliverables, coordinate the technical work and report to the political level. These cover several areas, including export controls, global trade challenges, technology standards cooperation, climate & green tech.

In the context of the Transatlantic Green Trade Agenda, MedTech Europe welcomed the opportunity to provide industry’s input to the Commission on priorities in the area of green and sustainable trade flows under the EU – US TTC framework.
