    The 1990 Transatlantic Declaration and the 1995 New Transatlantic Agenda (NTA) established the basic structural link between the United States and the European Union, instituting numerous bilateral meetings at several levels and defining the substantive scope of U.S.-EU interaction. For almost a decade, the "NTA process" has been central to the creation of a comprehensive and regular transatlantic dialogue. Yet, for several years, there has been a significant element of frustration among observers of the NTA, to whom it often seems that the process has come to dominate the substance. Some of the major non-govenmental elements of the NTA have fallen into inactivity, and those that remain, the business and legislative dialogues, have struggled to remain relevant. Much of the government-to-government interaction has been dominated by the need to produce "deliverables" on a laundry list of issues. Perhaps most frustrating, the NTA process, even when running relatively smoothly, has clearly not reduced the overall level of transatlantic tension, as is made evident by the current bout of the US.-European discord-one of the worst in years.
