The TRANSATLANTIC TRADE AND INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP (TTIP) was a proposed trade agreement between the European Union
European Union
and the United States , with the aim of promoting trade and multilateral economic growth. TTIP was considered a companion agreement to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) . As of January 2017 , the negotiations were halted indefinitely in late 2016, although speculations were made about resuming the talks. According to Karel de Gucht , European Commissioner for Trade between 2010 and 2014, the TTIP is the largest bilateral trade initiative ever negotiated, not only because it involves the two largest economies in the world but also "because of its potential global reach in setting an example for future partners and agreements". Its main three broad areas are market access, specific regulation, and broader rules and principles and modes of co-operation

Classified Information
CLASSIFIED INFORMATION is material that a government body claims is sensitive information that requires protection of confidentiality, integrity, or availability. Access is restricted by law or regulation to particular groups of people, and mishandling can incur criminal penalties and loss of respect. A formal security clearance is often required to handle classified documents or access classified data. The clearance process usually requires a satisfactory background investigation. Documents and other information assets are typically marked with one of several (hierarchical) levels of sensitivity—e.g. restricted, confidential, secret and top secret. The choice of level is often based on an impact assessment; governments often have their own set of rules which include the levels, rules on determining the level for an information asset, and rules on how to protect information classified at each level. This often includes security clearances for personnel handling the information
