TIA Files Comments on US-European Union Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

Arlington, VA (May 13, 2013) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, filed comments on Friday, May 10 in support of the United States and European Union entering into a comprehensive, high-standard Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). 

In its comments, TIA noted the significant potential for a TTIP to increase transatlantic trade of telecommunications goods and services. As the two largest telecommunications markets in the world, the benefits of a comprehensive agreement will likely have a significant commercial benefit to the United States and Europe.  TIA looks forward to working with the governments of the United States and European Union to contribute to a TTIP that will strengthen transatlantic trade of telecommunications equipment, benefiting both businesses and consumers in the United States and European Union.
