Many thanks for your contribution to both yesterday’s dinner and today’s public event. The conversation provided the Brussels audience with a novel and thought-provoking take on the current negotiations and left everyone with lots of food for thought. It was great to be able to draw on your expertise and recent research on the broader implications of TTIP and how non-party states might react.
Dear Peter, I want to thank you for your willingness to attend and excellent contribution to the Africa Outlook conference that we held earlier this week in Durban – it is greatly appreciated. The feedback has all been tremendous.
Der Tutwa-Newsletter ist eine sehr gute Informationsquelle mit qualitiativ hochwertigen Kommentaren (The Tutwa Newsletter offers very valuable information and high quality comments)
Congrats on the GVCs paper. I think it came out very nice. I am also sure it is a very important contribution to an informed discussion of this topic, which, as we know, is of great relevance. I am particularly keen on papers that try to bring the global reality closer to home.
I think it was a thorough overview of the landscape and I believe provided very useful input into our engagement with Treasury on these issues. I know that they have taken some of the points we have made, based upon your input, into account in their deliberations.
