Ombudsman welcomes Commission progress on transparency in TTIP negotiations
The European Ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly, has welcomed the latest steps taken by the European Commission to increase the transparency of the on-going Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations. Namely, in response to her own-initiative inquiry, the Commission is building on its more pro-active approach to publishing TTIP documents. It stated that its soon-to-be-published list of TTIP documents will be comprehensive, and signalled that it continues to seek to persuade the United States of the need for greater transparency in these trade talks.
