The Oregon economy could get a boost from a new trade agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and the European Union. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership aims to remove trade barriers in a range of economic sectors to make it easier to buy and sell goods and services between the U.S. and the EU.
 
The partnership would eliminate tariffs in certain sectors, potentially creating thousands of jobs and increasing exports of Oregon goods in industries such as aerospace, semi-conductors, computer services and wine. 
 
Rosalind Campion, counsellor for global issues at the British Embassy in Washington DC, was in Portland last week to talk about the potential economic benefits that a successful US-EU free trade agreement would have for the state.
 
Campion and Oregon Business Research Editor Kim Moore met in the downtown PDX cafe, Pazzoria, where the two Brits (Kim hails from Billingham, UK) discussed international relations over coffee — not tea.
