ECIPE Seminar: The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Will it Shape Global Trade Policy?

October 05 2015
Venue: Change of Venue: New Zealand Embassy and Mission to the European Union, 9 - 31 Avenue des Nerviens, Level 7, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Deborah Elms, Martin Harvey, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 15:00

Talks about the Trans-Pacific Partnership are edging closer to a successful end.

Ministers from the twelve participating nations will meet again at the end of September with the view of closing negotiations soon. If they succeed, what will be TPP’s influence on global trade policy? It spans over an economically dynamic region of the world and is, for some, associated with grander plans for building stronger and deeper regional integration in the Asia-Pacific region. For others the TPP may not be the next-generation agreement some anticipated and like other preferential agreements, risks spurring competing trade blocs. While it will surely provoke trade diversion for Europe, what can the EU do to get a stronger foothold in Asia-Pacific trade policy?
