The European Commission (Directorate General for External Relations and Directorate General for Energy and Transport) hosted the Second EU-US Aviation Forum on Liberalisation and Labour on 22-23 June 2009 in Brussels.
The aim of this second two day Labour Forum was to develop further the understanding of social issues relating to the existing and proposed reforms in the context of the EU-US aviation agreement and the associated second stage negotiations, notably those associated with the reform of traditional nationality-based ownership and control rules. This second Labour Forum looked to build on the experience of the first Labour Forum held in Washington in December 2008 by examining possible solutions to the problems identified.
