Andreas Galanakis, AmCham EU Policy Director, spoke on regulatory cooperation at the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership stakeholder event. Andreas stated that AmCham EU believes TTIP is a great opportunity to create a framework for transatlantic cooperation that could reduce or eliminate unnecessary regulatory divergences. Doing so will also facilitate business for those already engaged in the transatlantic economy, but also broaden the opportunities of smaller businesses which do not currently trade across the Atlantic.
