Webcast Recap

The Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations present wide ranging opportunities and challenges for each member country. As the 12 nations continue to seek ratification, each government will be describing the economic benefits expected from increased regional trade and integration, while at the same time explaining how their own economies will meet the test of increased competition and the task of strengthening various regulatory standards.

In this event, U.S. Trade Representative  Ambassador Michael Froman spoke on the benefits of this Partnership to the U.S. economy and to the Obama Administration’s goal of deepening regional ties across the Pacific.
