Leaders of the European Union and the United States agreed to establish a high-level working group to boost job creation and economic growth on both sides of the Atlantic.
They asked the Transatlantic Economic Council to establish a High-Level Working Group on Jobs and Growth, led by U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht.
The Working Group will work closely with all private and public stakeholder groups as it considers options for strengthening transatlantic trade and investment to support mutually beneficial job creation, economic growth, and international competitiveness.
Until April 23, interested stakeholders are invited to contribute their ideas and comments on how to enhance transatlantic job creation and economic growth. For further information on the working group and to submit your contribution, please see: http://trade.ec.europa.eu/consultations/?consul_id=160
