The United States Trade Representative has requested comments on negotiating objectives with respect to Canada’s and Mexico’s participation in the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.
(to be submitted by 9/4/2012)
The California Chamber of Commerce supports new countries joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement as long as participants comply with current international norms and obligations, and commit to the high standards currently being negotiated for trade and investment, as well as, intellectual property protection and enforcement. Agreements like this ensure that the United States may continue to gain access to world markets, which will result in an improved economy and additional employment of Americans.
Leaders of the current nine Trans-Pacific Partnership countries, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and the United States, have announced the achievement of broad outlines of an ambitious, high-standard, regional, 21st-century Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.
Note: This email is being sent to members of the CalChamber Council for International Trade; CalChamber members with international interests; local, binational and American chambers of commerce abroad; the consular corps; California congressional delegation, selected U.S. and California government officials; and representatives of business and trade associations.
