Readout of U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo Meeting with EU Commissioner Thierry Breton

Today, Secretary Raimondo met with her counterpart, European Union Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton, who visited Washington for a series of meetings on U.S.-EU cooperation on boosting vaccine manufacturing, ramping up semiconductors production, and strengthening supply chain security in critical sectors.

Secretary Raimondo reaffirmed the importance the Biden Administration places on our partnership with the EU. They discussed expanding and deepening our economic relationship - the world's largest - and working together to ensure our policies deliver for our people and industries on both sides of the Atlantic. Secretary Raimondo underscored our desire for close engagement and consultation on our wide range of shared interests, including through the US-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC), established in June as part of the U.S.-EU Summit.
