The article presents information relating to negotiations on promoting the mutual recognition of qualification agreements. These agreements should be launched following an European Union-United States summit in Washington DC. In a policy paper preparing for the June 20 meeting, the European Commission said negotiations should focus on sectors where an economic interest or need for such agreements has been substantiated. It said the summit should appoint negotiators on both sides for the agreed sectors, to draw up timetabled implementation plans within six months.
