The World Trade Institute published a study on “TTIP and the EU member states” in January, ahead of the latest round of negotiations between the European Union and the United States.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the economic impact of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) on trade and investment between EU member states. Today the French economy is largely based on services, and to a lesser extent on manufacturing. The United States is the main importer of French goods and services in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, transport, equipment, machinery, drinks and tobacco sectors.
The latest round of negotiations took place from 22 to 26 February.
