00:01:26 SOUNDBITE EU Commissioner Karel De Gucht (English): "As most of you will be aware, on July 8th we began negotiations for a transatlantic trade and investments partnership. Here it will be particularly important that Europe work efficiently together, following the fine example sets by our sportsmen. Of course there is an important nuance in this comparison : Ryder Cup American and European golfers must play and win, and where there is a winner there is also a loser. Similarly American and European companies must compete fiercely among and against each other for market share. That is how our economies grow. But American and European trade negotiators who are negotiating the transatlantic trade and investment partnership are not in fact competing against each other. They fight hard to get the best deal of course which is why size matters. But both sides have the same basic objective, the biggest possible boost to the transatlantic economy by opening our market to each other." 00:01:08

00:02:47 SOUNDBITE EU Commissioner Karel De Gucht (English): "The goal here is not a transatlantic de-regulatory free for all. Instead we are taking a pragmatic approach. On the one hand we want to look at existing regulations. There we will try to make the technical aspects of EU and US regulations more compatible. While leaving the political choices about the level of protection firmly intact. This is what we would like to do with chemicals and financial services for example, key sectors in this part of the world. On the other hand we want to bring more transparency and cooperation into the way we make new regulations to gradually bring our systems closer together. But even with this pragmatic approach we should be under no illusions that a regulatory chapter will be easy." 00:00:52
