60% of total FDI globally 40% of global GDP (in purchasing power parity) 33% of global trade in goods and services $600 billion in total trade flows annually (larger than the entire GDP of Argentina) Nearly $4 trillion in total investment stocks (larger than the entire GDP of Germany) 13 million jobs in Europe and the United States connected to transatlantic trade and investment US-EU Economic Relationship

Who We Are Moving beyond the financial crisis Setting global norms and standards Addressing global challengers TTIP: What’s at Stake?
Assumptions 100% reduction in tariffs 25% reduction in costs associated with non-tariff barriers to trade 50% reduction in procurement barriers Uses the CEPR “ambitious scenario”
All states gain jobs and increase exports Key Findings One new TTIP-related job generated for every 160 in existence TTIP-related job growth tends to be highest in the services sector On average annual exports to Europe jump 33% per state
The greatest gains in exports occur in states that are particularly well integrated into the supply chains of the transatlantic motor vehicles market. Goods trade (in terms of growth), particularly advanced manufacturing, stands to benefit more from an ambitious TTIP. Estimated increase in individual state exports to the EU post implementation of an ambitious TTIP (%)
