    The press service of the European Commission said that the 14th round of talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement is scheduled to take place in Brussels on July 11-15.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The 14th round of talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement is scheduled to take place in Brussels on July 11-15, the press service of the European Commission said Wednesday.

    "The talks will help pave the way for a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, between the EU and the US. Negotiators will discuss all three main parts of the agreement, namely market access, regulatory cooperation, and rules," the press service said.

    The last round of TTIP negotiations was held in April 2016 in New York City. During the 12th round of talks negotiators made progress in regulatory cooperation and good regulatory practices.

    The TTIP free trade agreement, which has been negotiated since 2013, involves the creation of a free trade zone between the European Union and the United States. Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland are also due to participate in the TTIP deal.
