Through the TPP, the Obama Administration is seeking to develop a high-standard, 21st century, regional trade agreement that begins with eight like-minded countries (the U.S., Australia, Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam) and eventually includes countries across the Asia-Pacific region.  The agreement will advance U.S. interests with some of the most dynamic economies in the world and help increase American exports, which are critical to the creation and retention of high-paying, high-quality jobs in the United States.     

Public input is critical to ensuring that the agreement achieves these goals and addresses the interests and concerns of U.S. stakeholders.
