The Government believes it is in the UK's interest to create modern investment provisions in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) to both encourage investment and create a potential model for future trade and investment agreements with other countries. The Government wants provisions which guarantee the right of governments to legislate in the public interest, while assuring access to justice for investors who are discriminated against or treated unfairly.
