It happened in the EP: 21 June 1967 - Jean REY, Member of the EEC Commission spoke on the Kennedy Round and the Tariff negotiations (GATT)

The Media Library - 18-06-2015

Negotiations between the EU and the US on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) could lead to the world's largest free-trade area.

In reality, the question of a transatlantic free trade area is not new. On July 4, 1962, U.S. President John F. Kennedy called for a transatlantic partnership, aimed at opening the markets.

From 1964 until 1967 the signatory countries of GATT (General Agreements on Tariffs and Trade) negotiate, via the Kennedy Round, new tariff and customs reductions.

We would therefore like to invite you to take a step back in time, to 1967, to listen to a statement by Jean REY on the progress of the negotiations between the Community and The USA.

Jean REY was a Member of the European Commission in charge of external relations, and played a leading role in the negotiations of the Kennedy Round.
