One day before the meeting of the EU trade ministers and a few weeks before the June EU-US summit in Brussels, with trade issues prominently on the agenda, the seminar examines concrete advances and setbacks in the EU-US trade relations. The number of topics is vast and complex: from steel and aluminium tariffs to digital tax and “Buy American” initiative. The issues will be covered from both the US and EU angle. Is there room for optimism?
