Ombudsman: EU must interrogate US over TTIP transparency

21 April 2015

The United States’ resistance to greater transparency in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks, poses a problem to a European Commission that must answer demands for more openness from civil society if it is to seal the trade deal, the European Ombudsman has told EurActiv in an exclusive interview.

Emily O’Reilly is the European Ombudsman. The Ombudsman investigates maladministration in the European institutions. She spoke to deputy news editor James Crisp before the latest round of talks, which started on 20 April in New York.
