We are not close to an agreement, but the dialogue continues, Economy Minister George Stathakis said on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Stathakis was speaking at an event of VouliWatch and ThePressProject.

The minister pointed out that Greece accepts that the reduction of duties might enhance trade, but the TransatlanticTrade and Investment Partnership is not only this, it is a very complicated issue and there are aspects of the agreement with which the Greek government has disagreed.

However, he noted that there have been some improvements through the dialogue such as increasing transparency and a new system of solving differences.
