Can the US Negotiate a High Standard Trans-Pacific Partnership?

What's at Stake for Jobs and Consumers?

 

Tuesday, Feburary 12th

 12 Noon to 1:30 PM

 Lunch will be served.

 

The negotiations to form an 11 nation Trans Pacific Partnership linking markets in Asia, and North and South America is a highly ambitious project with important strategic and economic implications.  It could allow new supply chain efficiencies, and begin to resolve important new issues, like restrictions on data flows, and the slide toward state capitalism. It could be the basis for an even larger grouping of economies. Will the U.S. be able to realize its goals without being more aggressive in its offers?


Featuring a panel discussion with:

Ed Gresser, Director, Progressive Economy Project

Rick Johnston, Senior Vice President and Director, International Government Affairs, Citi 

Steve Lamar, Executive Vice President of the American Apparel and Footwear Association

Robert Vastine, Senior Industry Fellow, Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy

Barbara Weisel, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, USTR
