Odds Slipping for US-EU Trade Accord
EU's outgoing trade chief warns trade agreement at risk of never being completed. The Financial Times reported that, “When President Barack Obama announced he would seek a sweeping trade deal with Europe in his State of the Union address nearly two years ago, officials on both sides of the Atlantic set a goal to complete it before the EU leadership’s term ran out. “Just over a month before Brussels changes hands, not only is the US-EU deal far from completion, but the EU’s outgoing trade chief has warned the pact – which would be the biggest trade agreement in history – is at risk of never being agreed,” the newspaper reported.
