Economic Implications of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

RAPPORT Publicerad

Empirical research shows that the forthcoming TTIP agreement can be expected to have a positive impact on economic growth in both the EU, including Sweden, and the United States – and a similar conclusion can be drawn with regard to trade and investment liberalizations vis-à-vis other countries. The harmonization of regulations and standards between the EU and the United States is also likely to contribute to spillover effects, not least since many third countries can be expected to adopt some of the common standards agreed between the EU and the United States.
