The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the largest regional trade accord in history, high-standard trade agreement with 11 partner countries in the world’s fastest growing region–the Asia-Pacific, home to 40 percent of global GDP and 800 million consumers. This landmark agreement will give U.S. small businesses new access to important overseas markets – eliminating 18,000 tariffs on Made-in-America products – while addressing barriers at or behind the border to make it cheaper, easier and faster for U.S. businesses to get their products and services to TPP consumers.
Tune into this webinar to learn more about the agreement and benefits TPP holds for your industry, community, and small business.
