New online hub for Trans Pacific Partnership talk

Sep '11
To kick off the latest round of negotiations in Chicago, IL, this week, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Apparel Coalition launched a Web site in support of a high-standard and innovative 21st century TPP agreement that generates new trade and investment opportunities for the benefit of U.S. workers, businesses, and families. The new Web site, www.tppapparelcoalition.org, will serve as an online hub for resources in support of the TPP Apparel Coalition's newly-released TPP position paper.

“As negotiators from all nine TPP countries gather in Chicago for the latest round of TPP talks, the Web site we launched will be an important tool for disseminating information about the U.S. apparel and retail industry's position on the TPP agreement,” said AAFA Executive Vice President Steve Lamar. “As the talks progress, we will continually update this portal with key documents and relevant information to fully equip negotiators and inform stakeholders in order to achieve the most robust trade and investment opportunities possible.”

Central to the Web site is the TPP Apparel Coalition's newly-released TPP position paper that fully outlines the key goals and objectives of the coalition in terms of achieving an agreement that spurs new trade flows and investment opportunities that will help drive job creation here in the United States and throughout the TPP region.

Through the U.S. apparel and retail industry's global value chain, the TPP Apparel Coalition aims for a TPP agreement that generates jobs along the full range of activities that firms and workers do to bring a product from its conception to the final customer.

This includes activities such as design, production, marketing, distribution, retail and support to the final customer. When considering ways to create new opportunities in the TPP for apparel, it is important to keep in mind the value and jobs created throughout the entire value chain, not just factory production.

Trans-Pacific Partnership

The TPP is an Asia-Pacific regional trade agreement currently being negotiated among the United States and eight other partners -- Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.
