Bloomberg BNA cites the Atlantic Council for hosting an event with Acting Deputy US Trade Representative Wendy Cutler:
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement being negotiated by 12 Pacific Rim countries is gaining momentum as a platform for regional economic integration, acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Wendy Cutler said July 23.
In remarks at the Atlantic Council, Cutler traced this momentum to three factors:
• The TPP talks are in the final stages of negotiation;
• The pact’s benefits come from addressing real issues of current concern in trade policy; and
• The TPP is of growing interest to new members.
