European Commission to launch public online consultation on investor protection in EU-US trade agree

 As part of its ongoing efforts to make its negotiations with the US the
most open and transparent trade talks to date, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De
Gucht will today launch a public consultation on investor protection and
investor-to-state dispute settlement (ISDS) in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership
(TTIP)
, in a response to the growing public debate and increased concerns over
ISDS within TTIP.

The aim of the consultation is to better define the
EU's approach to investor protection and ISDS in the proposed TTIP negotiation
by allowing all stakeholders an opportunity to provide their reflections. In
its consultation the Commission also explains how it wants to make ISDS in the
EU-US trade agreement more transparent and accountable than existing practice.
