This chapter is the first in this book to deal with a specific policy area and with the trends and issues that have occurred within it. Whereas Chapters 1 and 2 have covered broad trends and the changing nature of the relations between European integration and the United States, here the focus is much more on the particular characteristics of the policy area and of EU and US policies, on the ways in which these have generated tendencies towards competition or convergence, and on the ways in which the relationships has been managed. The chapter thus draws upon Chapters 1 and 2 for broad background, but focuses strongly on recent and current policy developments and their implications. It begins by exploring some of the main features of the trade relationship, proceeds by assessing EU and US trade policies, and then moves on to deal with some of the issues of management that have emerged within the relationship.
