The Trans Pacific Partnership: Race to the Finish, or Long Slog Ahead?

Featuring Jason Kearns, Simon Lester, Meredith Kolsky Lewis, & Daniel J. Ikenson

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.
