The US is for many European industry sectors the most important export market outside Europe. Therefore, trade relations with the USA are of crucial importance to 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.
The video record of our online-discussion on this issue is now available:
