Ahead of the next EU-US Summit in the first half of 2021, the European Commission and High Representative have put forward a proposal for a new, forward-looking transatlantic agenda.
The new agenda spans four areas, highlighting first steps for joint action that would act as an initial transatlantic roadmap, to address key challenges and seize opportunities:
- Working together for a healthier world: COVID-19 and beyond
- Working together to protect our planet and prosperity, with a comprehensive transatlantic green agenda and a joint commitment to net-zero emissions by 2050
- Working together on technology, trade and standards, leading reform of the WTO, establishing a new EU-US Trade and Technology Council and creating a specific dialogue on the responsibility of online platforms and Big Tech.
- Working together towards a safer, more prosperous and more democratic world
