Trans Pacific Partnership: Obstacles and Opportunities
The Trans-Pacific Partnership
Agreement (TPP) involves 12 countries and is the first
"mega-regional" trade agreement of its kind. The countries
included represent 40% of global output and 25% of global exports.
Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) used
to deal mostly with goods. Modern trade agreements, including the TPP,
encompass a much broader range of regulatory and legal issues so it is being
debated on all sides. How will this affect your business? Join our
distinguished panelists to find out the answers to your questions.
