TTIP: meeting with representatives of municipalities from Nordrhein-
Westfalen - 25 March
-- For ARES registration please --
I gave a presentation on TTIP to about 20 representatives of municipalities from Nordrhein-Westfalen
from the Commission's Bonn office.
My presentation covered the usual issues: objectives and main content of TTIP; main concerns
(transparency, standards, public services, culture, ISDS).
Questions focused mainly on public services (coverage, ratchet, procurement etc.) and linkage with ISDS.
All in all a good discussion which revealed considerable interest. Presentation was followed by the usual
requests for participation in forthcoming TTIP events (Duisburg, Dortmund) which I politely redirected to
our Bonn office.
