Minister Kai Mykkänen: Reports of the death of TTIP are premature


Minister for Foreign Trade Kai Mykkänen considers reports of the TTIP treaty’s death premature after meeting with Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström in Brussels. Mr Mykkänen says that the commissioner has « strong intent » to finish the treaty, although it might not be finished before the end of US President Barack Obama’s term. Mr Mykkänen believes that the treaty could bring thousands of jobs to Finland. The minister also met with Commissioner for Development Neven Mimica. Finland and the Commission agree that development aid should be given in the form of investments into local companies.
