The United States is in the process of negotiating trade agreements across both of our bordering oceans. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), with nations on the Pacific Rim, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP), with the members of the European Union. The 40 countries participating in these talks collectively account for about 60 percent of global GDP and 50 percent of world trade, so the efforts to reach these agreements could reshape the global economic landscape, and influence its continuing recovery efforts. BGOV will convene a group of experts to discuss the specifics of these deals, and how changing the political landscape might impact their success.
