The European Union and the United States of America established diplomatic relations as early as 1953, but it was only in November 1990 that the cooperation was formalised for the first time with the Transatlantic Declaration pdf - 34 KB [34 KB] . Since December 1995, the New Transatlantic Agenda pdf - 43 KB [43 KB] (NTA) has provided the foundation for the relationship.

The final report with conclusions and recommendations from the Working Group was produced on 12 February 2013.
