Join USTR For a TPP Webinar
On Tuesday, August 17th, the Office of The United States Trade Representative will host a webinar to discuss the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The webinar’s initial audience included Indiana companies interested in exporting, but it is now open to anyone interested in learning more about the TPP.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership offers tremendous opportunities for U.S. exporters. In a world where 95 percent of consumers reside outside our borders, the Asia-Pacific region comprises 40 percent of the global population. These dynamic economies are growing faster than the world average and generated 56 percent of global GDP in 2009. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market in the world for U.S. exports and receives two-thirds of U.S. agricultural exports. The Obama Administration is committed to increasing these exports and creating more jobs here at home through the TPP.
The TPP webinar will be on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT and is hosted by lead negotiators Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Southeast Asia & Pacific Affairs Barbara Weisel, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Environment and Natural Resources Mark Linscott and Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Labor Lewis Karesh.
