TTIP Lunch Briefing for Parliamentary advisors

6 February 2015, 12:30-14:00 (lunch will be served at the event) Leopold Plaza Building Rue de Trône 108, 1050-Brussels 6th floor, Room Caprice

You are kindly invited to a briefing session on the trade priorities of the pharmaceutical industry with regards to TTIP, organised by EFPIA. The briefing aims at shedding light on widespread misconceptions about the relevance of TTIP to Europe, industry interests, investment protection and regulatory cooperation, among other issues, with a specific focus on the case of pharmaceuticals. The case of pharmaceuticals is a pertinent one to trade agreements, as barriers to trade can effectively serve as barriers to treatment.  For the biopharmaceutical industry a progressive trade policy means a secure and predictable business environment, while it also plays a key role in increasing patient access to medicines everywhere in the world.

The briefing leaves ample time for questions and answers, which would provide an opportunity for a frank discussion on diverse issues between advisors in the European Parliament and industry representatives in a neutral manner, under Chatham House rule.

TTIP i see as THE most dangerous battle between the people, and the interests of corporations we have ever been faced with.
the corporate world, actually the USA.....is intent upon dominating western economies.
this must not happen.
