There will be a live web-screening of the first hour of the hearing, followed by an off-the-record  panel discussion and analysis with experts on transatlantic relations and trade. Breakfast will be available.


On September 10, The President-elect of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker presented his new team of 28 Commissioners. They will now all be scrutinised by the European Parliament, through hearings in competent committees taking place from 29 September to 7 October, before the full house will vote on the new college on October 22.

First of them all will be the Commissioner-designate for Trade, Ms Cecilia Malmstrom. Ms Malmstrom, currently the Commissioner for Home Affairs, has a long experience within the European institutions.  She was a Member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2006, working mainly in the area of Foreign Affairs, before she was appointed as the Swedish Minister for European Affairs (2006-2010).

In the mission letter for her mandate as a Commissioner for Trade, President-elect Juncker highlights that she has the responsibility to “work towards a reasonable and balanced Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the United States of America, which neither threatens Europe’s safety, health, social and data protection standards, nor jeopardises our cultural diversity. I will ask you to enhance transparency towards citizens and the European Parliament during all steps of the negotiations. Our aim must be to conclude the negotiations on a reciprocal and mutually beneficial basis.”
