TTIP negotiations are now moving into a decisive phase. The pace of progress over the next six to nine months will indicate how comprehensive and ambitious the outcome could be. After intense and controversial debate in a number of member states, expectations in Europe are now more realistic. Should the EU go for the “early harvest” or should it stick to the comprehensive approach of including the more difficult NTB issues, even if it means extending negotiations until the next US-administration will be operative? How to deal with the “losers” of TTIP in Europe? What are essential NTB-issues for Europe (public procurement, services, digital)?
