Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a historic trade agreement originally negotiated between 12 nations, including the United States, Japan, Mexico, and Australia. In January 2017, President Donald Trump ordered the United States trade representative to withdraw formally from the TPP. PIIE has conducted extensive research showing the wide-ranging trade deal's benefits vastly outweigh any potential costs.
