Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

The Asia-Pacific region includes some of the world’s most robust economies and represents more than 40 percent of global trade. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is an opportunity to advance U.S. economic interests in this critical region and to respond to the Asia-only regional trade agreements being negotiated by our competitors. A high-standard TPP agreement that addresses tariff and non-tariff barriers, including phytosanitary measures, will support expansion of U.S. agricultural exports and promote job growth.
