U S Chamber Comments on TTC WG 7 Export Controls Cooperation Jan 2022
January 24, 2022
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is grateful for the opportunity to provide comments to the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission regarding the work of Trade and Technology Council (TTC) Working Group 7, focused on enhancing cooperation on export controls. The Chamber is a strong proponent of the TTC, and we are eager for this effort to yield tangible results. Export controls represent one of the most urgent areas for constructive collaboration. Enhanced bilateral coordination with the European Union and its member states—as well as plurilateral collaboration with like-minded third countries—on export controls is essential to enhance the capacity for controls to achieve their specific policy objectives. Such coordination and collaboration is also particularly important to avoid unintentionally undermining U.S. or European companies vis-à-vis international competitors.
