Office of US Trade Rep Releases Detailed Summary of TPP Objectives

Washington, D.C. –The Office of the United States Trade Representative today released a detailed summary of the most recent U.S. negotiating objectives on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The report, coupled with a recent update on progress made in negotiations at a July ministerial meeting in Hawaii, are part of continued Administration efforts to make trade negotiations accessible and transparent to the public and their representatives in Congress. The steps USTR has taken were in line with provisions included in the bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority bill passed earlier this year.

“This report is a detailed look at what we are fighting for at the TPP negotiating table to help unlock opportunity for U.S. workers, farmers, and businesses,” said Ambassador Froman. “We have taken Congress’s marching orders through bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority and our ongoing consultations seriously and are following through on delivering the high standard deal Congress and the American people expect.”

“This is another in a series of steps this Administration has taken to share information at every step of the TPP negotiating process,” said Chief Transparency Officer Tim Reif. “Through detailed summaries, a robust congressional consultation process, outreach to a more diverse set of stakeholders, and public input on negotiating aims, we continue to build a more open and transparent negotiation process. We are always looking to do more, and appreciate the important steps taken on transparency in the Trade Promotion Authority law.”

United States to Host Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Ministers’ Meeting in Atlanta

Washington, D.C. - The United States will host a meeting of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade Ministers in Atlanta, GA from September 30th – October 1st preceded by a meeting of TPP Chief Negotiators from September 26th-29th. Trade Ministers and negotiators last met in July and have been making good progress toward resolving the limited number of outstanding issues.

NOTE: Working members of the media can register to participate in the open press events of the TPP Ministerial by RSVPing here. All press registration must be received no later than 6:00pm ET on Monday, September 28.

The TPP is about to be finalized. And the US media is nowhere to be found. This "agreement" was not mentioned in either debate so far. Did Fox and CNN forget it? Sure they did. Good Luck!
