Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) passed in the House of Representatives on June 12 without the crucial inclusion of Trade Adjustment Assistance. Now, TPA remains in limbo, and with it, the future of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). What is the view of our Latin American and Asian negotiating partners on the status of the TPP discussions and the key issues to be resolved? How could completion of an effective agreement unleash new growth and investment opportunities for the United States in participating countries, and what would be the effect on non-signatory countries?

Join the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Global Business and Economics Program for a discussion with Latin American and Asian ambassadors representing key countries in the TPP negotiations. Each will share their unique insight on the potential opportunities—and pitfalls to be addressed—that lie ahead with this agreement.

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Registration: 12:00 p.m.
Discussion: 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

A light lunch will be served.
