Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

ISSUE

The TPP will remove barriers to trade, which is critical to the U.S. remaining competitive in the global economy, and will undoubtedly result in job creation and economic growth throughout the U.S., and specifically in the Los Angeles region. 

In California, where 45 percent of total goods exported went to the TPP region and more than $71 billion is exported to TPP markets each year, the agreement is important to maintaining that market share.

The TPP will not only expand existing trade between California and six current U.S. free trade agreement (FTA) partners, it will also open new markets for California with five Asia-Pacific countries that are not current U.S. FTA partners.
