With this conference, the Greens/EFA would like to take the opportunity to discuss the role of the service sector and the myriad of challenges it is facing, such as the drive for liberalisation. This is even more interesting in the context of the negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
There is going to be representatives of trade unions, governments, think tank and universities. The key note speech will be held by Frank Bsirske, chairman of the trade union on service industries in Germany.
The conference is organised by the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament
