The UK has always been supportive of deepening trade relations between the US and the EU and continues to support an ambitious, wide-ranging TTIP deal which opens markets. It is for the Commission and the new US Administration to discuss TTIP in the first instance. We welcome the significant progress that has been made to date.

A joint EU-US report was published on 17 January 2017 on progress made in the TTIP negotiations. The Government was notified by the Commission last week that a more detailed technical report is now available, which we are in the process of making accessible to MPs and Peers in the UK’s national TTIP Reading Room.
