Pro-TPP Caucus Formed on the Hill

 
  • RSS Feed

Today, a new caucus was formed on Capitol Hill in support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

"Friends of the Trans Pacific Partnership" was formed by Congressmen Dave Reichert (R-WA), Ron Kind (D-WI), Charles Boustany (R-LA), and Gregory Meeks (D-NY). Here's a link to the press release from Congressman Reichert.

As the TPP (hopefully) begins to draw toward a successful completion, it's good to see support for the agreement beginning to form on Capitol Hill.

IPI has been engaged as an NGO stakeholder during the TPP process, giving presentations during several of the negotiating sessions and engaging with negotiators during the scheduled stakeholder sessions. We're supportive of lowering trade barriers and raising intellectual property protection and other standards with our trading partners. 

Free trade is a key to continued economic growth and contributes to peaceful relationships with our trading partners. It's a win-win.
