AED Celebrates Canada’s Entrance into Trans-Pacific Trade Group
Last week Canada, along with Mexico, was invited to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an agreement to liberalize trade among Pacific nations.
In a January letter to U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, AED urged Canada’s admission and highlighted the benefits of U.S. and Canadian trade relations. In addition to improving Canada’s access to global markets, Canada’s participation in the TPP will benefit both the U.S. and Canadian economies by improving efficiencies for companies doing business on both sides of the border.
In addition to the North American countries, TPP members include Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. The expanded TPP will now constitute the United States’ largest export market.
