In a global economy, we are stronger when we trade and work together. For this reason, UK and Denmark support an ambitious free trade agreement between the EU and the US. We want an agreement that removes tariffs and makes it easier to sell and buy products between the EU and US without compromising product safety and environmental protection.

To highlight the importance of securing an ambitious agreement, the British Embassy in Copenhagen will be running a TTIP quiz at the Danish political festival, Folkemødet (11 – 15 June 2015). You can also enter your bid via e-mail.
