In The News Take Action
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a modern trade agreement for a modern economy that removes foreign tariffs (taxes) and other trade barriers and sets strong and enforceable rules for free and fair trade, which will make American companies, workers and farmers more competitive in international markets. The TPP is an agreement among 12 countries that, combined, represent nearly 40 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP). U.S. trade with these TPP countries supported 15.6 million American jobs in 2014, out of the 41 million supported by U.S. trade with the world. The TPP agreement opens new opportunities for American businesses, farmers and workers to sell U.S.-made goods and services to consumers in some of the fastest-growing economies in the world, which will benefit American workers and the American economy.
To learn more about the TPP agreement, its key provisions and its benefits for U.S. industries, please visit the USTR TPP website and the Commerce Department TPP website for fact sheets and other information.
