BACKGROUND:

Oregons trade ties with Pacific Rim nations and the rules which govern trade and investment are key to our states economic vitality. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement is currently being negotiated between the United States and several Pacific Rim countries, including Vietnam, Mexico and Canada.  While 10 Pacific Rim countries are currently participating in the negotiations, the TPP could ultimately include all 21 members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.  Given its broad scope, the TPP negotiations have the potential to impact almost every facet of Oregons economy. 

Since 1994, trade and investment between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico has generally been governed by the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.  TPP provides the opportunity to update these terms to supersede NAFTA.  There are important lessons to be learned from Oregons experience with NAFTA which should inform views on construction of the TPP.  Particularly with respect to energy, the TPP could dictate whether the U.S. can more strategically manage its natural resources or adopt rules to protect our environment.

To provide information about TPP and hear about its implications to the Oregon economy and the United States, Senator Wyden will hold a public listening session on August 13, 2012.
