TPP Coalition Implements State Letter Campaign

Thursday, May 19, 2016

(North American Meat Institute)The U.S. Coalition for TPP, to which belongs, prepared letters to send to members of Congress from all 50 states urging strong support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. The letters, which have been customized with state-specific export and employment data, underscore the importance of ratifying the TPP for the U.S. economy and to enhance the competitiveness of American workers and business in foreign markets.

Meanwhile, ministers from the 12 TPP countries will meet this week in Arequipa, Peru, in conjunction with the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation trade ministers meeting. U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman will brief his counterparts on the outlook for Congressional approval of the pact and will receive details about the ongoing ratification processes in the remaining 11 countries.
