Trade Promotion Authority (TPA)

Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) is a critical tool in efforts to seek approval of trade agreements that support and create U.S. jobs while helping American agriculture to compete more successfully in the global marketplace. TPA will help ensure that America’s farmers, ranchers, and food processors receive the greatest benefit from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP), and other trade negotiations.
