TTIP has been stuck in technical negotiations since those started three years ago. Negotiators hope to reach a deal before the end of 2016. However, political agendas on both sides of the Atlantic and the recent EU referendum in the UK suggest a longer process is most likely. The postponement of negotiations is made even more probable by the recent declarations of the French government, which pledged to call for an end of TTIP talks when EU trade ministers next meet in Bratislava on 23 September.
