Jacob Schrot on TTIP: Let's Make a Basic Choice

Jacob Schrot, Chairman of the Young Transatlantic Initiative, on TTIP at a panel discussion last friday: 

„The negotiations towards a deep and comprehensive Transatlantic Trade- and Investment Partnership (TTIP) are tremendously complex and would come with concrete impacts to 800 million citizens living on both sides of the Atlantic. However, before getting into the disputed details, everyone of us needs to make a basic decision: do we want more free trade and integrate our economies in internationalization or do we want to retreat to our national borders and protectionism? I choose the former.“
As Initiative junger Transatlantiker / Young Transatlantic Initiative, we stay committed to counter myths about TTIP and advocate for an informed debate about the potentially largest free trade area in history.
