The U.S. will host a meeting of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade ministers September 30 through October 1, 2015, in Atlanta, Georgia, following a meeting of TPP chief negotiators. Trade ministers and negotiators last met in Maui, Hawaii, in July, where several agricultural issues remained unresolved, including U.S. demands for greater access to markets in Japan and to Canada’s dairy market. The TPP trade deal, which includes the U.S. and 11 Asia-Pacific region countries, would cover 40 percent of the world’s economy.
