October 15 2015
A TPP event with Claude Barfield (AEI)
Register for this event
As negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement concluded successfully, United States prepares itself for a battle about TPP ratification, just at a time when the race for the 2016 presidential election has accelerated. Is its passage in Congress secured? And now that the negotiations are done, how will U.S. post-TPP trade policy be shaped? What are the political sentiments that define policy – and will them make TTIP the central priority? Or is the U.S. considering other initiatives?
Claude Barfield, Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and leading expert on U.S. trade policy
