The 140-page agreement, the negotiation and implementation of which has been in force for nearly five years, is highly technical and was drafted in accordance with the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other international trade and investment principles. In principle, the BTA can be summarized as an obligation for both parties to create the necessary conditions for the products, enterprises and nationals of the other Party in order to have equitable access to the markets of the other Party. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership would remove the current barriers to trade between the United States and the European Union. It would be the largest deal to date and would even surpass the North American Free Trade Agreement. Negotiations were frozen after President Trump took office. Although the EU is made up of many Member States, it can negotiate as an entity. .
