Ministers from the nine Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries met today in Honolulu, Hawaii on the margins of the 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic and Leaders’ Meeting. This was the ministers’ last meeting before TPP leaders convene this weekend to assess progress in the TPP talks. Countries are seeking a high-standard, ambitious, 21st-century trade pact in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and set the goal of reaching the broad outlines of an agreement by this week’s APEC meeting.
