EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom delivers a speech in Ottawa

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – The European Union sees a good case for reviving frozen free trade talks with the United States, its trade commissioner said on Thursday.

“There is still a very good case to take negotiations on TTIP between EU and the US forward but I think we need to wait a little bit more for them to assess where we were, where we stopped, where they want to go,” Cecilia Malmstrom told a conference in Copenhagen.
