The CS European Union’s Country Commercial Guide CCG (link may require registering with CS website) presents a comprehensive look at the European Union's commercial environment, using economic, political and market analysis. It provides in-depth information on and weblinks to topics including trade regulation and standards, selling U.S. goods and services, political, economic and investment climates and financing requirements. The CCGs were established by recommendation of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC), a multi-agency task force, to consolidate various reporting documents prepared for the U.S. business community. Country Commercial Guides are prepared annually at U.S. embassies through the combined efforts of several U.S. government agencies.
