Roundtable on Enhancing Transatlantic Economic Relations

The U.S. Departments of Commerce and State and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative invite interested stakeholders to participate in an informal roundtable on the transatlantic economic partnership, focusing on innovation. Deputy Assistant Secretaries Eric Stewart and Glyn Davies and Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative James Sanford will lead the discussion at the U.S. Department of Commerce on Thursday, October 28, 2004, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The October 28 roundtable discussion is part of a series of listening sessions being held by U.S. Government officials to reach out to business, consumer, labor, environmental, and academic communities. In June 2004, U.S. and EU leaders challenged stakeholders on both sides of the Atlantic to engage in a discussion of concrete ideas on how to further transatlantic economic integration, spur innovation and job creation, and better realize the competitive potential of our economies and enterprises. U.S. officials welcome comments on opportunities and challenges in the transatlantic marketplace. U.S. Government agencies will synthesize comments into their recommendations to U.S. leaders prior to the 2005 U.S.–EU Summit.

Anyone interested in attending the session in Washington, DC, on October 28 should e-mail Dan Fogarty at FogartyDJ@state.gov or Jen Levine at jen_Levine@ita.doc.gov. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited, so please inquire promptly.
