TPPA Negotiators Meeting This Week to Finalise Corporate Trade Deal

On September 26, a meeting between negotiators from all 12 nations involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will commence in Atlanta, Georgia. The meeting will run through September 30, followed by two days of meetings with trade ministers. The Atlanta meetings come on the heels of a joint meeting in San Francisco that included negotiators from the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Mexico.

The San Francisco meeting reportedly dealt with rules related to the auto industry. The upcoming Atlanta meeting is expected to be one of the final meetings as President Obama attempts to close the deal before the end of the year. Last Wednesday, President Obama spoke to a room of business leaders about the state of the TPP: “We should not assume, though, that because the [trade promotion] authority was done, that we automatically are going to be able to get TPP done,” Obama told the group.
