Fresh political impetus was given to economic and regulatory cooperation between the European Union and the United States in the autumn of 2007 when the first meeting of the new Transatlantic Economic Council took place in Washington in November.

The EU and the US made important commitments during the first meeting of the Transatlantic Economic Council (TEC) in Washington on 9 November 2007. In a joint statement, they emphasised 'the importance of our shared commitment to reducing barriers to international trade and investment to increase the standard of living of our citizens'.
