Start at: 9:00 am. Ends at: 5:30 pm.
Atelier des Tanneurs, Rue des Tanneurs 60A, 1000 Brussels, Belgium
We are currently – and on both sides of the Atlantic – in the middle of an unprecedented scale of crisis: war in Europe, climate change, double-figure inflation and escalating energy and food prices causing worst fall in living standards since the post-WWII, attacks on the rule of law and democracy.
The EU and the U.S. governments have joined forces in (voluntary) policy and regulatory dialogues to address and find joint solutions to many of these issues. Current discussions include workstreams on ‘consumers’ (which include sustainability, financial services and the digital age), the broad Trade and Technology Council, as well as dedicated dialogues on agriculture, competition policy and public health. The transatlantic consumer movement has stated that such cooperation should make markets fairer and safer, and that regulators can improve decision-making about health, environmental and digital policies on both sides of the Atlantic, but without impacting each other’s freedoms to regulate in the public interest.
Our public forum, the first in-person post pandemic, will examine what this bilateral cooperation has achieved since its launch, and what it should focus on going forward to deliver concrete outcomes, in each of the areas covered.
