The Trans Pacific Partnership: Race to the Finish, or Long Slog Ahead?
The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations have just completed their 19th round, and there is talk now that they are nearing the “end game” and a deal might be reached by the end of the year. However, there are reportedly still many unresolved issues and a fair amount of work ahead. Is a 2013 completion date realistic? If not, when will the TPP countries reach agreement? And if they do, what will the U.S. Congress think about the deal? Please join us for a discussion of these and other issues related to the TPP.
