The Trans-Pacific partnership is arguably the most influential — and controversial — international trade agreement since NAFTA. The agreement will promote expansion of the digital economy and will eliminate or reduce tariff and non-tariff barriers for virtually all types of traded goods. Closer to home, the Port of Portland is at a crossroads, facing a change in leadership, ongoing challenges to its maritime operations and questions about future land acquisition and airport features.

1. How will the TPP impact Oregon businesses?
2. How are Oregon businesses coping with a reduction in container service at the Port's Terminal 6?
4. How is the port managing challenges and positioning itself for growth?
5. What other social, economic and demographic shifts are driving change in Oregon’s export economy?
