The EU and the US today announced they will hold a second round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks in Brussels from Monday 11th – Friday 15th November 2013. The week-long round of negotiations replaces the talks originally scheduled for 7th-11th October but which were postponed due to the shutdown of the US government. This round of negotiations will now put the TTIP discussion process fully back on track in terms of the planned negotiation timeline.

The teams of negotiators from either side of the Atlantic are expected to discuss services, investment, energy and raw materials, and regulatory issues. The negotiations' session on public procurement had taken place before the shutdown.

The talks in Brussels will be followed by a third round of negotiations to be held in Washington DC the week of the 16th December.
