Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs)

  • We seek to strengthen U.S.-EU cooperation to enhance the participation of SMEs in trade between the United States and the EU.

SMEs are the backbone of the American and European economies.  The United States’ 30 million SMEs account for nearly two-thirds of net new private sector jobs in recent decades.  SMEs that export tend to grow even faster, create more jobs, and pay higher wages than similar businesses that do not.  T-TIP will enhance already strong U.S.-EU SME cooperation and help SMEs on both sides of the Atlantic seize job-supporting trade and investment opportunities.
