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.

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.
