Transatlantic Partnership: What are the Implications for Animal Production?

16 September 2014

US - The targeted Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Union (EU) and the USA is currently the subject of lively debate and will be discussed at Eurotier 2014.

Instead of assessing the benefits rationally and weighing up the risks impartially, opinion is being stirred with emotions and half-truths.

What is the current stage of the negotiations? What must animal farmers in the EU and the USA expect?

Experts from the EU, the USA and Germany will be providing answers to these questions at first hand in a lecture and discussion event at the world’s leading trade fair for animal production professionals, EuroTier in Hanover, on 12 November 2014.

The event will be held at 16:00 h on Wednesday, 12 November 2014, in the Convention Center (CC), Room 3 B.

The conference language is English and all EuroTier 2014 ticket holders can attend.

For organisational reasons registration is required – this is possible at

The event is being organised by DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – German Agricultural Society) and IPPE (International Production & Processing Expo), Atlanta (USA).
