Commerce Department to Host Webinars on Benefits of TPP

Aug 10, 2016

The International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce is leading a series of webinars on the benefits of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. These webinars will help U.S. businesses of all sizes better understand how TPP would increase their competiveness and the growing commercial opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.

Here is the list of webinars and links for registration.

Dairy Industry Supports TPP

The TPP is an historic pact between 12 countries containing features that will help America’s dairy foods companies and dairy farmers in the future. After months of analysis and deliberation, IDFA, the National Milk Producers Federation and the U.S. Dairy Export Council endorsed the pact this spring, saying the agreement presents, on balance, a step forward for U.S. dairy farmers and companies that process and market their milk.

TPP is expected to help level the playing field for U.S. exports and create new opportunities in the highly competitive Asia-Pacific region, as long it’s implemented accurately and all countries agree to honor their commitments.
