In a Monday speech to the California Chamber of Commerce International Forum, Deputy USTR Demetrios Marantis noted that the second round of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations will be held in San Francisco, California the week of June 14. USTR is excited to host the second round and continue to move forward with negotiations. Through the TPP, the Obama Administration is seeking to develop a high-standard, 21st century, regional trade agreement that will advance U.S. interests with some of the most dynamic economies in the world and help expand U.S. exports to support high-paying, high-quality jobs in the United States. Watch USTR.gov and USTR.gov/tpp for more information about the negotiating round.
In the meantime, USTR is seeking public input on TPP negotiations through USTR.gov with an online chat this Friday, May 21 at 11:00 a.m. You can submit your questions and comments here, and be sure to join the chat this Friday.
